LCME Accreditation

The Saint Louis University School of Medicine is fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the accrediting body for medical education in the United States.

Following a planned site visit in October 2016, the LCME placed the school on probation after identifying areas of concern in SLU’s medical education program that must be addressed within the next two years. (These areas of concern do not involve patient care through SLU’s physician practice.) SLU is developing an immediate plan of action to address the issues and to have the probation status lifted.
