Med Accreditation

The USD Sanford School of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) which accredits medical schools in the U.S. and Canada. Each school undergoes a complete accreditation survey at least every eight years, and we conducted our most recent full survey visit from Sept. 24 through 28, 2017. During the LCME self-study, the school is actively engaged in numerous evaluation and improvement efforts.
