Accreditation

To satisfy the requirement of the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) stating that, effective 2023, any physician wishing to apply for ECFMG certification will be required to graduate from a medical school that has been appropriately accredited, the LAU Gilbert and Rose Marie Chagoury School of Medicine submitted an application for accreditation to the Turkish Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Medical Education Programs (TEPDAD), an accrediting agency recognized by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME). The school has finalized its Self-Evaluation Report, and has submitted the report in November 2019. Determination of accreditation status by TEPDAD is expected in 2021.
