About LCME

Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation is a process that occurs every eight years. EVMS received its last letter of full accreditation in 2012. If the LCME has concerns about a school’s ability to meet accreditation requirements, they may offer provisional accreditation and return prior to the eight-year cycle.

Medical schools applying for accreditation compile and submit a survey package to the LCME that is reviewed by a survey team. The package contains a number of documents – many of which include data and information from students.
