Appointment of LCME Members

The 19 voting members of the LCME include 15 professional members (medical educators and practicing physicians), 2 public members, and 2 medical students. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association (AMA) each provide nominations to the LCME for seven professional members and one student member. The LCME appoints professional and public members from the slates of nominees for a three-year term, renewable one time. The student members are appointed from the nominations slates for a one-year term.  One professional member is appointed from the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS) membership.

The LCME is represented by ad hoc teams of evaluators who conduct on-site surveys of medical schools. Survey team members are a mix of basic science and clinical educators and practitioners. Members of the LCME and surveyors conducting survey visits volunteer to serve as peer evaluators. The activities of the LCME are administered by two Secretariat offices, one at the AMA in Chicago, IL, and one at the AAMC in Washington, DC. Members of the LCME and its survey teams, excluding full- and part-time staff, serve the LCME without compensation.

Each year, the LCME reviews annual survey data and written reports on all accredited U.S. and Canadian medical schools, and conducts survey visits to 20-30 institutions.
