Please join us for a virtual Grand Rounds presentation with Dan Hunt, MD, MBA, Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) field secretary and Secretary Emeritus titled: “Creating Physicians Where a Medical School Should Not Exist.” "In this time of so many moving parts in medical education, be they the changes in USMLE scoring or increased on-line learning, we must ask ourselves how we can use these situations to maximize our graduates’ skills and likelihood of addressing society’s health care inequities. Having been on both sides of the table, both defending a school's innovative curriculum to the LCME and then later being the LCME reviewer for many, if not most, of the new schools across the US and Canada, there are lessons to be shared on how to let the LCME standards guide rather than obstruct creativity."

Dr. Hunt is a Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) field secretary and Secretary Emeritus after serving nine years as the Co-Secretary for the LCME and Senior Director for the Association of American Medical Colleges. He is also the President of the Accreditation International group which works with countries as they create or improve their own accreditation systems.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the three factors to look for in applicants when trying to increase the likelihood they will eventually practice in rural settings.
  2. Explain the LCME's definition of "comparability
  3. Describe the likely impact on admission and curriculum innovations with the recent change to pass/fail for Step 1 scoring.
