Directory of LCME accredited Medical Education Programs

The LCME accredits medical education programs leading to the MD degree in the United States and, in collaboration with the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools, in Canada. Graduates of LCME-accredited programs are eligible for entry into residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and students/graduates of LCME accredited programs are eligible to take the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). This includes programs with any of the following accreditation statuses: full, preliminary, provisional, including on probation. Read more about the LCME accreditation process.

For medical schools that have multiple campuses, there is no separate accreditation of the individual campuses. All campuses come under the single accreditation of the “parent” medical school.


The LCME does not accredit medical education programs leading to the MD degree outside of the passport-granting areas of the United States and Canada.
