Final CACMS/LCME Accreditation Report

uOttawa MD program receives final accreditation report

Highest rating across most elements

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 in contrast to our last accreditation where four elements were deemed unsatisfactory (non-compliant). While the preliminary findings at the disappointing exit interview suggested a total of 19 elements cited as either unsatisfactory or satisfactory with monitoring, the final notification cites only nine elements. The Faculty has already begun to work on these remaining elements and the first follow-up report, which will be due in August 2019. 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.
