“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” – Henry Ford

The School of Medicine leadership received the results of our LCME accreditation site visit. The results are extremely positive as a stand alone report. The school had only one citation, in comparison to the national average of six. In addition, when we compare this result to our last site visit eight years ago, the improvement is astounding. This is a very proud moment for us.

The road to this point was long and arduous. But we together early on, we stayed together throughout, and we were able to achieve success. Many people worked with diligence and great strategy, especially over the last 4 years. Dr. Mark Servis, Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, and Roy Rai, who manages the Office of Medical Education, led this effort. Having been involved throughout, I wish I could name every person who helped with this effort. Every effort counted.

Working together is, indeed, success.
