Continuous Quality Improvement & Accreditation


Thank you for visiting the LCME Accreditation and Continuous Quality Improvement Website

As the official accrediting body for medical education programs in the U.S. and Canada leading to the M.D. degree, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) evaluates medical schools about every eight years. The LCME accreditation process provides a valuable opportunity for quality assurance and improvement of our college and our curriculum.

Through Accred the Med, students within the College of Medicine are encouraged and empowered to find their voice and impact positive change.

Accred The Med, Find your voice for positive change

June 22, 2021

Dear NEOMED Community,

I am happy to report that following the LCME Committee’s June 2021 deliberations last week, the LCME voted to end the College’s accreditation with “warning” status and change its status to full accreditation of the medical education program of the Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Medicine.  A detailed accreditation letter from the LCME will be forthcoming within the next month.  At that time, we will share more about the specific findings of the LCME.  Our next LCME full accreditation survey will be in the 2026-2027 academic year.

After the long years of hard work by so many, this is certainly outstanding news!  My sincere thanks to everyone for your involvement and support throughout this process.

With sincere gratitude and appreciation,

Elisabeth H. Young, M.D., F.A.C.P.
