Undergraduate medical education (UME) programs participate in accreditation with the belief that it contributes to improving UME quality and ultimately patient care. Linkages between accreditation and UME quality are incomplete. Previous studies focused on student performance on national examinations, medical school processes, medical school's organizational culture types, and degree of implementation of quality improvement (QI) activities as markers of the effectiveness of accreditation. The current study sought to identify new indicators of accreditation effectiveness, in order to better understand the value and impact of accreditation.
