General Questions for the LCME Secretariat

  1. Our institution would appreciate clarification on one point in Element 12.8. This element reads, “A medical school has policies in place that effectively address medical student exposure to infectious and environmental hazards, including…The effects of infectious and environmental disease or disability on medical student learning activities.” Can you please clarify if this is intended to:
    a. Ensure the medical school provides accommodation to any student affected by an infectious or environmental disease or disability so that their learning activities are not hindered;
    b. Confirm the school has a process to review and ensure prevention of such exposure in learning activities;
    c. Both.
  2. Are there best practices around selecting membership of the task force and sub-committees (nominations v. invitation, size, etc.)?
  3. What is the earliest date we might receive access to the DCI? How disadvantageous is it to use the most currently available DCI as a general template for those involved in data compilation in an effort to increase awareness and understanding about what data will be needed?
  4. Have schools identified proprietary software that they have found beneficial in organizing, tracking, and compiling the LCME accreditation requirements, including opportunities for on-going quality improvement?
