Undergraduate Medical Education Accreditation


Due to COVID, Memorial's undergraduate medical accreditation has been rescheduled to April 4-6, 2022. CACMS will provide further information about the virtual site visit in the coming months.

The vision of the Faculty of Medicine is: Through excellence, we will integrate education, research and social accountability to advance the health of the people and communities we serve.

Supporting that vision is our work to ensure our undergraduate medical education program continues to meet national standards for educational quality. The process of accreditation ensures we are delivering high quality, dynamic and innovative academic programming to our learners while enabling our faculty to be exceptional teachers.
Accreditation of every Canadian medical school occurs every eight years according to guidelines by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS).
Medical schools demonstrating compliance are afforded accreditation, a necessary condition for a program’s graduates to be licensed as physicians.

"Accreditation ensures that Canadian medical faculties' MD Programs meet the quality expected when producing tomorrow's doctors." -CACMS

Memorial’s Faculty of Medicine undergraduate program is fully accredited by the CACMS and the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which are the accrediting bodies for all North American medical schools.
