Accreditation and Licensure

Accreditation

Weltweit School Of Medicine facilities and curriculum are accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM). The United States Department of Education has determined that the ACCM's accreditation standards are comparable to those set by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which accredits medical education programs in the United States. AUC students are therefore eligible to apply for student loans under the U.S. Federal Family Education Loan Program. State Approvals/Licensure
