The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University received a full eight-year accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). At the end of their medical education, students are certified as having completed their requirements for the medical degree, and that information is used for them to obtain a license to work as residents under supervision by a licensed physician in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The last LCME site visit review was in October 2012. The next LCME site visit will be held October 4-7, 2020, and involve key stakeholders from the Medical School, including students, faculty, administration, and staff.
AMS is currently in the self-study phase of the re-accreditation process with the Steering Committee, nine LCME Subcommittees, and an Independent Student Analysis Subcommittee contributing to the efforts. If you have any questions about the upcoming re-accreditation process, please contact the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education Dr. Allan Tunkel or Associate Dean for Medical Education Dr. Paul George.
Monthly newsletters focusing on various areas of the self-study process are being sent out via email to students, faculty, administration, and staff. An archive of the newsletters can be found below.
The Warren Alpert Medical School’s graduate and continuing education programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), respectively.
