Annual LCME Medical School Questionnaires
Each year, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) collects data about the structure and operations of accredited medical schools. Aggregate data are used to inform public policy making and provide accountability to the public on the content and methods of medical education. The system includes three questionnaires: the LCME Part I-A (Annual Financial) Medical School questionnaire collects data on the revenues and expenditures for U.S. medical colleges; the LCME Part I-B (Student Financial Aid) Medical School Questionnaire collects data on financial assistance, grants, loans, work-study, and educational indebtedness for medical students; and the LCME Part II Annual Medical School Questionnaire collects data on operational characteristics of the educational program leading to the M.D. degree.
