Site visit will provide guidance in anticipation of LCME review
Dr. Dan Hunt and Dr. Barbara Barzansky of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) will tour the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Green Bay and Central Wisconsin campuses as part of a consultative visit Sept. 10-11.
LCME is the accrediting body for medical school education programs. The visit will provide guidance to the LCME application process necessary for the community-based programs to function within MCW’s existing accreditation. In 2011, the LCME awarded MCW an eight-year accreditation status – the maximum possible – for its medical doctorate program.
The upcoming visit will also aid the Community Medical Education Program team’s efforts to develop regional campuses that incorporate the LCME principles of central authority, comparability of education, infrastructure and student support.
