Accreditation Status


The University of Ottawa medical program was fully accredited in 2018. The next full accreditation review will take place in 2027.

In the report it provided to the medical school on October 16, 2018, CACMS/LCME rated 84 of the 93 elements within the 12 standards as “satisfactory”—the highest rating. Of the remaining nine elements, the accreditors rated six as “satisfactory with monitoring.” Thus, only three elements were rated as unsatisfactory. This is an improvement from our previous accreditation where four elements were deemed unsatisfactory (non-compliant). Our Faculty worked hard to address these elements and submitted follow-up reports in August 2019 and March 2021. A link to the full report and a preliminary Faculty interpretation of the report are below.

On behalf of the Faculty of Medicine, as well as Drs. Forgie and Marshall, I would like to congratulate you all. Thank you for your hard work and support.

Dr. Bernard Jasmin
