In 1952, the School of Medicine at CWRU (then known as Western Reserve University) implemented the innovative curriculum widely credited with initiating changes in medical education throughout the country and around the world. Our education program continues to receive accolades; in 2002, the School of Medicine became only the third institution in history to receive the best review possible by the authority that grants accreditation to U.S. and Canadian medical degree programs, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
