The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredits programs leading to the MD degree in the United States and Canada. The LCME’s scope is limited to complete and independent medical education programs whose students are geographically located in the United States or Canada for their education and that are operated by universities or medical schools chartered in the United States or Canada.

Carle Illinois was granted LCME preliminary accreditation in October 2017. Currently we are working on achieving provisional accreditation.
