Welcome Message from Dean Terence R. Flotte MD, School of Medicine


The Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which accredits schools of medicine in the United States and Canada, will visit UMass Medical School for an accreditation site visit April 26-29, 2020; the process of institutional self-study in preparation for accreditation is now in full operation.

The centerpiece of the accreditation process is the institutional self-study, overseen by a task force comprised of individuals who represent a broad range of stakeholders and key constituencies for the educational program leading to the MD degree. 

We view the accreditation process as an important opportunity for in-depth dialogue among our diverse constituencies that will foster ongoing innovation and change and enable us to build on past and present successes in medical education. 

I invite you to browse our website, contact us with your feedback and ideas, and check back often for updates and related LCME news. 

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.
