The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredits medical education programs to grant the MD degree. To achieve and maintain accreditation, medical schools must demonstrate the 12 standards of educational quality outlined in the Functions and Structure of a Medical School, a guide updated yearly by the LCME. The standards provide assurance that graduates of an MD program will have the professional competencies necessary for entering residency.
Mercer University School of Medicine has full accreditation for granting the MD degree on each of its three, four-year medical education campuses and will undergo LCME review for accreditation renewal in academic year 2028-2029. Our school is committed to quality assurance and continuous quality improvement to meet the current and future standards for medical education.
