The Accreditation Council for Medical School Preparation Pipeline Programs (ACMSPP) is an independent physician-led, not-for-profit organization that sets and monitors the core competencies and educational standards essential in preparing future medical students to thrive in pre-medical undergraduate study, medical school and beyond.
Accreditation of a medical school preparation pipeline program is a process by which a program is evaluated by a group of its peers (“peer evaluators'') in order to determine its quality. The peer evaluators perform this evaluation by conducting an in-person “site visit,” after which an accreditation decision is made by the ACMSPP Board of Commissioners.
ACMSPP is also the largest accrediting agency, accrediting medical school preparation pipeline programs throughout the United States, its territories, and internationally.
