Liaison Committee on Medical Education

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) is an accrediting body for educational programs at schools of medicine in the United States and Canada.[1] The LCME accredits only the schools that grant a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree; osteopathic medical schools that grant the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree are accredited by the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation of the American Osteopathic Association.[2] The LCME is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association. It publishes many guides and standards,[3] including the Directory of Accredited Medical Education Programs.[4] The LCME currently accredits 134 U.S. schools, which includes 4 in Puerto Rico, as well as 17 others in Canada.[5]
