First LCME Remediation Update

March 14, 2017

Dear SLU School of Medicine Supporter:

Thank you for your interest in our LCME remediation process and for visiting the website. We welcome your input throughout this process. Though we are disappointed in the results of the LCME assessment, we will use this learning opportunity to become an improved medical school.

What lies before us is an opportunity to create a more robust learning organization.  To do so, we will enlist input from a wide variety of stakeholders including alumni, faculty, students, staff, and extramural experts. Collectively, we own our results, and, collectively, we will improve.  As a learning community, we accept this challenge graciously.  

Our remediation will be characterized by wide engagement, transparency, meticulous attention to detail, teamwork, data-driven decisions, and a sense of urgency.  We seek to rapidly resolve issues in our educational program.  

We look forward to gathering your ideas and thoughts about transforming our School of Medicine into a model medical education program.  Visit this site frequently for updates about our progress.  Alternatively, please feel free to drop us a note at som-deansoffice@slu.edu.

Again, thank you for your interest and support.  Let’s get to work.

Best wishes,

Kevin Behrns, M. D.
Vice President for Medical Affairs
Dean, School of Medicine
