Avalon University School of Medicine granted ACCM accreditation
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Avalon University School of Medicine (AUSOM) is excited and pleased to announce that they have been granted accreditation  by the Accreditation Commission of Colleges of Medicine (ACCM).   This is an significant milestone in the continuing growth and success of the medical school.   As an international medical school located on the Caribbean island of Curacao, pursuing accreditation shows their commitment to providing the highest levels of education to the students and the same level of quality in their business practices.   Achieving accreditation by ACCM is evidence that they are part of an elite few medical schools in the Caribbean that have met the rigorous standards of an internationally-recognized third party.

With the requirements set forth by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), obtaining ACCM accreditation is an especially important accomplishment for Avalon University School of Medicine.   ECFMG is the entity responsible for certification of foreign medical graduates for medical practice in the United States.   ECFMG states that effective in 2023, they will require students to graduate from a medical school that has been accredited through a process that uses criteria comparable to those established for the medical schools in the United  States (LCME).   Since the ACCM standards are closely aligned to the LCME standards, achieving this accreditation ultimately means that Avalon has now met the  ECFMG 2023 requirements.  

With Avalon University School of Medicine continually moving up in the rankings of medical schools in the Caribbean, obtaining ACCM accreditation will help cement their status as one of the best medical schools in the Caribbean.
