CMS Accreditation Updates

Welcome to the Chicago Medical School accreditation update page. Our intent is to use this page to keep the CMS community and all its partners up-to-date and informed about the steps we are taking to address and resolve the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) issues relating to CMS. For more information about matters specific to the LCME visit: www.lcme.org.

What the Chicago Medical School Community Should Know:

  1. Chicago Medical School was placed on probation by the LCME October 14, 2013 and remains fully accredited while on probation.
  2. Members of the dean's staff were assigned and are accountable for the standards that are of concern and teams are working on action plans to address the issues.
  3. Through the strength of our students, faculty and staff, we have made significant progress in addressing the areas outlined by the LCME. Following its regular meeting Feb. 25-27, the LCME determined the areas of concern are no longer in “non-compliance.” The LCME considers these areas to be “in compliance with a need for monitoring.”
  4. The LCME has established key milestones over the next 12 months in which it will review our progress.
  5. This situation has demonstrated the importance of fostering an environment of even greater collaboration and innovation.

This calculation is based on the work plan that has been developed for each of the fourteen competencies that are in compliance with a need for monitoring, using a simple mathematical equation of tasks completed divided by total number of tasks. It is a representation of the work effort by the school's administration, faculty and staff.

Today, I convened a special meeting of the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC), which is composed of the basic science chairs, clinical chairs, dean’s staff and representatives from our affiliate hospitals. At the meeting, we discussed the LCME probation and, specifically, how to address the particular issues of faculty appointments. Later, I had a class forum with the first year students. They asked excellent questions about the timeline for probation, PR ramifications, effect on student and faculty recruitment, and the overall approach to solving the issues. The day ended with a 90-minute meeting with the student leadership of CMS. The school is incredibly lucky that, at such a critical juncture, we have strong, concerned and invested student leaders who will work tirelessly to help their fellow classmates be as successful as possible in an environment that is fraught with distraction. Since I want to keep students in the loop as much as possible, I have offered to meet with the student leadership weekly.
