Some Information on LCME accreditation

LCME Accreditation Actions,

...Withdrawal of accreditation may occur when (a) there is documented evidence that an accredited program
exhibits substantial deficiencies in compliance with LCME accreditation standards, and (b) the deficiencies are
sufficiently serious, in the LCME’s judgment, to raise concern whether graduates of the program are competent to
enter the next stage of their training. Under normal circumstances, a program will have an opportunity to correct
serious problems of noncompliance through the mechanisms of limited visits or probationary status before the
LCME takes action to withdraw accreditation. However, rapid and precipitous deterioration in the quality of an
educational program may be sufficient grounds for withdrawal of accreditation, whether or not a limited visit or
probationary period has preceded the decision to withdraw accreditation.
