Faculty Guide – Pattern of Administration MD Program

Resource for Faculty and Student Success

This faculty guide, developed by the Department of Medical Education, provides a description of policies, guidelines, and procedures relevant to the Morsani College of Medicine educational programs. It is intended to serve as a resource for faculty to be mindful of as they teach, mentor, advise, and interact with learners.

Several of the policies, guidelines, and procedures within the document have explicit requirements from the LCME accrediting organization to make faculty aware of this information. Such topics include, but are not limited to anti-discrimination policy and procedures; learning environment/professionalism; student mistreatment; confidentiality of student educational records; and advancement, graduation, and due process guidelines.

MCOM LCME Accreditation Review – Volunteers Needed

The Morsani College of Medicine is currently preparing for the April 2023 Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) site visit. Preparation for this visit began in early 2020, and is an on-going collaborative process. 

Currently MCOM is gearing up for the LCME Self-Study with the creation of an Institutional Self-Study Task Force (SSTF), and six Self-Study Subcommittees.

Each subcommittee will review and answer LCME survey questions for the respective sections, and generate brief reports to be reviewed by the SSTF.

Faculty and student volunteers are needed to serve on the SSTF and subcommittees. If you are interested in volunteering please take a moment to review the LCME Update presentation, click here.
