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.

Today, the LCME secretariats spent the day meeting with more than 63 invited faculty, administrators, students and interprofessional colleagues and staff. There was a palpable feeling of seriousness, coupled with enthusiasm, for getting a better understanding of what we, as a school,  need to do: We need to not only meet the expectations of our colleagues on the LCME, but also use this time as an opportunity to better ourselves for the long haul.

I wanted to share with everyone an email I sent out at the end of the day to all who participated in the meetings. I believe it expresses my sentiments regarding the usefulness of the day and the pride that I felt for all of us who have been put in a difficult situation but are working tirelessly to right the ship.

Dear Colleagues,

I just wanted to say thank you for your participation in today's LCME secretariat visit. The visit met all my expectations.

You were collegial, inquisitive, positive yet concerned. You listened well. You asked great questions.

I hope you feel as I do that we have a much better road map as to how we can be successful with this next submission of documents for the LCME: Our goal is to have them successfully remove the non-compliance standards to the compliance with monitoring category.

There is much work yet to be done, but I think today was a good day for CMS and you were an important part of it.

John Tomkowiak MD, MOL

Dean Chicago Medical School
