There are many moving parts to any process and the accreditation efforts are no exception. By my informal calculation, over 30 to 40 people on any given day are actively involved in trying to resolve the issues that relate to our citations. It's important we get this right.
Recently, I received an update on our accreditation website. To date, the website has been visited over 16,000 times, which includes over 3,500 unique visitors. Though the initial volume was high, we are still averaging between 250 and 500 hits a day.
It's very important that we keep this website up to date and, if you've been following along daily, you will notice that we have added new content every working day (M-F) the site has been up. As we move forward, we will begin to populate the site with "artifacts." Artifacts are documents that we will submit to support our written responses to the LCME questions.
We have reached the 25 percent completion point with about a month to go. I suspect that over the next two weeks, our ability to strike items off our checklist will go even faster. My personal goal is to be around 75% complete with two weeks left before our submission deadline. As things move forward, I am confident we will meet that goal.
