JSSOM Earns Full LCME Accreditation for Eight-Year Term

I am very pleased to share some great news with our John Sealy School of Medicine community. Following many months of preparation starting in late 2021 and a multi-day site visit in January, our JSSOM has received the following notice from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME):

LCME Determination: Continue full accreditation of the medical education program for an eight year term

Congratulations! This result reflects the fabulous leadership of Dr. Majka Woods and the tremendous efforts of countless individuals across our school. Your hard work was critical to ensuring a successful reaccreditation process, and it continues to be valuable as we strive to continually strengthen the JSSOM and our programs.  

We will have a routine status report due on August 15, 2024, to address a few areas, as is normal in this process. Our next full survey visit will be in 2030-31. Thank you for all that you do to help UTMB deliver a high-quality medical education to our students!
