The University of Toledo is welcoming to its Health Science Campus surveyors from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and the World Federation of Medical Education this week.

The team arrived Sunday and will conduct a full assessment of the structure and functions of the medical school.

“This visit culminates a lengthy process, in which the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, the faculty, the students, the staff, the leadership of our med school, have invested over two years preparing for what is known as a full survey accreditation visit,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Gold, chancellor and executive vice president for biosciences and health affairs, and dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, on the latest edition of “The Chancellor’s Corner.”

In preparation for the visit, a team that was led by Dr. Constance Shriner, associate dean for faculty development and curriculum evaluation, developed an extensive self-study that reviewed all 131 standards for accreditation of medical schools.

The survey team will be on campus through the afternoon of Wednesday, May 1.

“We are very proud of the doctor of medicine program, and we warmly welcome the team from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and the World Federation of Medical Education to our campus,” Gold said.

“If you run into them, tell them how proud we are of our students and how pleased we are to have them on campus,” Gold added.
