    Avalon USOM obtains ACCM accreditation

    Avalon University School of Medicine is excited and pleased to announce that we have been granted accreditation by the Accreditation Commission of Colleges of Medicine (ACCM). This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our medical school. ACCM standards are comparable with the standards of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), and the LCME is empowered by the US Department of Education as the accreditor of US and Canadian medical schools. ACCM is also closely aligned with the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA).

    What does this mean to you?


    • As of 2023 Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) will be accepting only the accreditation bodies recognized by WFME. Click here…
    • ECFMG has devised a 4-phase plan which is being implemented as 2023 approaches. Click here…
    • In reference to ECFMG, accreditation by ACCM means that our students and graduates are permitted to sit for the USMLE licensing exams as well as obtain residency placement in the United States and in Canada even after the year 2023.

    Thank you Dango. Also its important to mention that ACCM accreditation is the equivalent to CAAM-HP accreditation, especially when it comes to ECFMG's 2023 requirement.


    The 2023 ECFMG certification requirement states that a student or graduate must be from a school that has been appropriately accredited, and the medical school must be accredited through a formal process that uses criteria comparable to globally accepted criteria, such as those developed by WFME. ACCM accreditation is recognized by WFME, which means Avalon is in compliant with ECFMG's 2023 requirement. For more information click the link below -
