LCME Accreditation

Reaccreditation: Moving our mission and vision forward

In June 2020, the Texas A&M School of Medicine received formal notification from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) that it had been granted full accreditation for the maximum term of eight years, with the next site visit scheduled for the 2027–28 academic year.

Continuous accreditation from the LCME, the national accrediting authority for educational programs leading to the MD degree in the U.S. and Canada, is crucial for our medical school and university. Achieving LCME accreditation confirms that medical education programs meet established standards. The accreditation process serves two main purposes: to encourage institutional self-assessment and enhancement, and to verify that a medical education program complies with set standards.

The preparation for the site visit, which occurred in February 2020, spanned over two years and engaged full-time and affiliate faculty, medical students, residents, and staff. This period allowed for a thorough review of the college's processes, procedures, policies, and programs, leading to numerous enhancements that fostered an improved learning environment for medical students and strengthened the college overall.
