Status of Accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education
The CUSM School of Medicine MD program has obtained preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). Accreditation by LCME is a multistage process. The LCME accreditation status can be verified in the LCME directory.
The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) approved the California University of Science and Medicine-School of Medicine (CUSM) to receive Preliminary Accreditation in February 2018. This approval allowed CUSM to recruit and advertise for students; solicit applicant information; initiate a process for reviewing admissions applications; issue admission letters; and teach medical students.
CUSM is undergoing an accreditation review by the LCME. During this review, the LCME will determine if our program complies with or has made sufficient progress toward relevant accreditation standards and, if successful, award provisional accreditation.
A survey visit for full accreditation typically occurs around 1.5 years after provisional accreditation. The LCME will determine if the program complies with or has made sufficient progress toward compliance with accreditation standards and grants full accreditation at that time.
