UMMS Maintains Full LCME Accreditation
The medical school underwent its most recent full accreditation review in July 2020. As a result of the LCME’s review of our medical education program, the University of Minnesota Medical School (UMMS) continues to be fully accredited.
Work continues to address areas for improvement (including submitting ongoing status reports to the LCME) and to maintain areas of compliance. These efforts ensure the medical school will be optimally positioned for success during its next accreditation cycle.

The UMMS will launch its next Institutional Self-Study beginning in the 2025-26 Academic Year. The Institutional Self-Study culminates with a Site Visit in the 2027-28 Academic Year.
We look forward to working with our committed faculty, staff, and students on our continued efforts and with the launch of our next Institutional Self-Study phase.
