|Beyond Checking the Boxes: Accreditation as a Driver of Innovation in Academic Medicine
LCME Accreditation is a process of self- and peer-assessment whose purpose is continual improvement in medical education program quality and assurance of that quality to the public and all other constituents the program serves. Meeting accreditation standards is an endpoint; how an institution meets those standards is distinctive, non-formulaic, and supportive of creativity. In this session, medical schools will present specific examples of how the accreditation process provided the stimulus for needed change and supported the disruptive innovation that accomplished and sustained that change.
