The Duke University School of Medicine is preparing for its reaccreditation by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME) in October 2016. The LCME is recognized as the reliable accreditation authority for educational MD programs at medical schools in the United States and Canada. Programs are required to demonstrate that their graduates exhibit general professional competencies that are appropriate for entry to the next stage of their training and that serve as the foundation for lifelong learning and proficient medical care. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association (AMA) jointly sponsor the LCME.
