Accreditation seeks to answer three key questions:
- Has the medical education program clearly established its mission and institutional learning objectives?
- Are the medical education program’s curriculum and resources organized to meet its mission and objectives?
- What is the evidence that the medical education program is currently achieving its mission and objectives and is likely to continue to meet them in the future?
Indiana University School of Medicine first received LCME accreditation during World War II. To become and stay accredited, medical school education programs must meet the national standards described in the document, Functions and Structure of a Medical School. In 2017, the LCME recognized IU School of Medicine with full-reaccreditation status through 2024-2025.
