Office of Accreditation

The CMS Office of Accreditation coordinates the efforts of the Medical School with respect to compliance and continuous quality leadership.  The Office manages the interface between the medical school and the LCME for undergraduate medical education, ACGME for graduate medical education, and the ACCME for continuing medical education. The Office is responsible for implementing the LCME Data Collection Instrument and the ASSET Database.  The Office is charged with facilitating the activities of the various Medical School constituents to not only achieve compliance with Standards, but to define and achieve excellence in medical education. Excellence in medical education is evaluated by establishing specific benchmarks, goals, and instruments of measure. Actual performance against all established goals is monitored and used to drive programmatic change, leading to continuous quality improvement.
