Abstract Body: Objectives The objectives of this small group discussion presentation are as follows: * To present an overview types of systems and reports that can help prepare a medical school for LCME-accreditation under current standards * To outline the benefits and challenges of meeting the new accreditation standards with new and legacy systems most commonly found in medical schools * To describe three examples of systems applied to address specific LCME standards and elements: - Program and learning objectives (Element 6.1, 8.2, 8.3) - Monitoring required clinical experiences (Element 6.2 and 8.6) - Depth and breadth of the curriculum (Standard 7). Methods The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) is the body that accredits medical schools in the United States and Canada. Completion of the Data Collection Instrument (DCI) is critical to the LCME-accreditation process. The DCI requires medical schools to provide data about all aspects of their program and the LCME focus on continuous quality improvement necessitates the need for systems to drive the outcomes reported within. This session will begin with an overview of the types of systems that are used in managing a medical school including curriculum management systems, evaluation systems and reporting systems (10 minutes). The overview will be followed by a presentation of the common benefits, e.g., dashboard monitoring and central oversight, and challenges, e.g., disparate data sources and limited reporting capabilities, of responding to accreditation needs using such systems (10 minutes). The brief presentation will be followed by a small group discussion of systems and solutions at WGEA medical schools (15 minutes). Participation in the discussion will be encouraged through the use of audience response tools. Intended Outcomes Medical school deans, accreditation specialists and administrators will receive an introduction to the technical aspects of preparing for an accreditation site visit. LCME Element 1.1 is a recently established standard to reflect the need for medical schools to demonstrate continuous quality improvement. Accordingly, understanding the systems that enable compliance-monitoring has become a driving factor in the accreditation process and this small group discussion aims to contribute towards this understanding. Target Audience The intended audience is deans, accreditation specialists and administrators preparing for an accreditation site visit.
