Accreditation Initiatives

Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) ~ UMMS Initiative

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) is the nationally recognized accrediting authority for medical education programs leading to the M.D. degree in U.S. and Canadian medical schools. The LCME is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association.

New England Association for Schools and Colleges (NEASC) ~ UMMS Initiative

The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)provides accreditation services for more than 2000 public and private institutions in the 6-state region - Pre-K through university. Emanating from high quality standards, NEASC accreditation uses self-reflection, peer review and best practices as integral components of its assessment process and monitors the follow-up endeavors leading to continuous school/program improvement. NEASC consists of 6 Commissions, each of which sets the standards for a particular segment of the educational community.
