I am pleased to report that we have met our goals of making significant progress and implementing changes that hopefully demonstrate to the LCME that we are in compliance with the standards that were previously determined to be in non-compliance. The rest of this week will be spent fine tuning the report that will ultimately be submitted to the LCME on December 16.
I know how hard everyone has worked to get us to this point and I’m incredibly appreciative of everyone’s efforts. However, this is not the end of our efforts but simply the beginning. As we move towards a new era of continuous quality management, we need to foster a culture that not only provides a solid foundation for the present, but prepares us to be successful in the future. I will write more about this in my blog after the submission is complete, but I am incredibly proud of the work we have accomplished in the last 54 days, and am looking forward to great things ahead.
