ABSTRACT

MEDICAL SCHOOLS Accreditation  The official accrediting body for medical schools is the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which is recognized for this purpose by the US Commissioner of Education and the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA). Since 1906 the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education has reviewed US medical schools for the purpose of assuring quality medical education. In 1942 the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) joined the AMA Council on Medical Education in establishing the LCME (for membership of the LCME see Appendix I).The criteria on which the LCME accredits medical schools in the United States and Canada are published in two separate but related documents: "Functions and Structure of a Medical School" and "Special Criteria for Programs in the Basic Medical Sciences." Copies of these documents are available from the LCME office, 535 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60610, or 1 Dupont Circle, NW,
