Liaison Committee on Medical Education to visit Vanderbilt Feb. 24-27

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) will visit the campus of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Feb. 24-27 to meet with faculty, students and staff as part of its periodic accreditation review.

The LCME accredits all schools of medicine in the United States and Canada, visiting programs every eight years. The site visit will be based in Light Hall. Representatives from all aspects of School of Medicine operations are scheduled to meet with the site reviewers over the course of four days, and medical students will lead two tours of educational facilities.

The last LCME site visit to the School of Medicine was in 2005. Questions about the LCME site visit are welcomed and may be addressed to Donna Rosenstiel, LCME site visit coordinator, at donna.rosenstiel@vanderbilt.edu.
