HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Bobby L. Miller, M.D., vice dean of medical education at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, was selected as one of 15 professional members of the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME), the accrediting body for medical schools in the U.S. and Canada.
In addition to 15 professional members composed of medical educators and practicing physicians, the 19-member LCME committee includes two public members and two medical students. Each year, the LCME reviews annual survey data and written reports on all accredited medical schools and conducts survey visits at up to 30 institutions. Miller will serve a three-year term beginning July 1.
“The LCME plays a vital role in maintaining the quality of medical education programs as well as the health and well-being of medical students and faculty at medical schools across the country,” Miller said.
Miller, who is also a practicing neonatologist with Marshall Health, has taken a leading role in the accreditation process at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine since his appointment as vice dean in 2013 and has successfully overseen two accreditation site visits at Marshall.
Miller is one of a number of medical school faculty at Marshall serving in leadership roles for national and state organizations.
