National accrediting body taps Woodward

Woodward_LA_mugDr. LouAnn Woodward, associate vice chancellor for health affairs and vice dean of the School of Medicine, has been appointed to the nationally recognized accrediting body for U. S. and Canadian medical schools.

Woodward will serve a three-year term beginning July 1 as a member of the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME), sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association.

The U. S. Department of Education recognizes the committee for accreditation of medical degree education programs in the United States. Most state boards of licensure require that U. S. medical schools earn accreditation from the LCME, signifying that they meet national standards for a medical degree education.

According to Dr. Dan Jones, chancellor of the University of Mississippi, UMMC faculty have served as site visitors before, "but no one from the university has served on the LCME board itself."

"This high-profile, national position is important for Dr. Woodward and for our university," Jones said.
