Meharry’s School of Medicine is accredited by the following organizations:

Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges, when considering accreditation status,  determines the institution’s integrity and its commitment to quality enhancement. These two principles serve as the foundation of the relationship between the Commission and its members and candidate institutions.


Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME)
Accreditation is a process of quality assurance in post-secondary education that determines whether an institution or program meets established standards for function, structure, and performance. The accreditation process also fosters institutional and program improvement. Medical education programs leading to the M.D. degree in the United States and Canada are accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. The LCME’s scope is limited to the accreditation of complete and independent medical education programs where students are geographically located in the United States or Canada for their education and that are operated by universities or medical schools that are chartered in the United States or Canada.
