Statement on LCME Probation

Meharry Medical College has been placed on probationary status by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the national accrediting body for the U.S.-based medical school, to address some notable areas of concern. We appreciate LCME’s feedback and are confident in our ability to successfully address the LCME findings, as we had already identified and made progress on several of the issues as part of our larger strategic planning process.


Probationary status does not impact our medical degree program’s accreditation nor our students’ degrees and futures. Our program is still accredited, and our day-to-day operations and classes will continue as normal.


We are committed to being as transparent as possible throughout the process toward resolution, and will communicate regularly with students, faculty, staff and supporters. Meharry will take this opportunity to grow stronger as a 21st century medical school, and is grateful for the continued support from our community.
