Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine Earns Full Accreditation

What You Need To Know

  • The Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine (HMSOM) has been granted full accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), a major milestone capping a seven-year review process that affirms the highest standards in the training of future physicians.
  • LCME accreditation is a voluntary, peer-reviewed process of quality assurance that determines whether the medical education program meets established standards.
  • Full accreditation by the LCME confirms the high quality of the program, as all aspects of the medical school must undergo  rigorous review, including the curriculum, finances, infrastructure and faculty.

Culminates Years of Work To Reinvent  Medical Education

"This is the culmination of years of work that started with a vision to reinvent medical education to create a physician workforce to thrive in a new state of medicine," said Robert Garrett, CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health. "We are reaching our goals to keep physicians in New Jersey, to diversify the physician workforce and graduate doctors who  will humanize healthcare." Sponsored by the Association of American Medical College and the American Medical Association, the LCME is the accrediting body for all institutions conferring medical doctorate degrees in the United States and Canada. “This tremendous accomplishment is a testament to the talent and perseverance of our faculty, staff, and students,’’ said Jeffrey Boscamp, M.D., dean of the School. “We are meeting every standard required of us while pioneering, among a small cadre of other institutions, an accelerated medical education program, fully embracing an active learning pedagogy, and pioneering an award-winning investment in our local communities through the Human Dimension course.”

HMSOM Graduated Its First Class in 2021

HMSOM was the state's first private medical school to open in decades. Since enrolling its first class in 2018, the school has graduated two cohorts of students, several of whom now work for HMH hospitals.  “We have spent long hours making this dream become a reality,” said Miriam Hoffman, M.D., a vice dean of the School. “We have been driven from the start to build a school that creates outstanding physicians who are ready to tackle our most pressing challenges. We are gratified to be fulfilling the mission and vision laid out for us from the outset by the founding dean, Dr. Bonita Stanton.”
