Dear San Juan Bautista Community:

On January 20th, 2012 we submitted the final document requested by LCME, for the accreditation of our School, before their survey visit on February -26-29.

The document is based on the two objectives raised by the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine:

a. Fully complying with the LCME concerns presented after the LCME April 25-25, 2011 visit to SJBSM and stated in the accreditation letter of November 18, 2011.

b. Strengthening current educational programs and developing new educational experiences in basic sciences, community service, learning and integrated primary care clerkships.

The following step will be the distribution and discussion of these documents with all of you. For this reason we will be appointing different meetings and activities during the month of February.

We thank everyone who helped to make possible the completion of the first phase of the process and at the same time, invite the entire Community of San Juan Bautista to be part of this historic moment for our institution.
