Belmont Announces Plans for New College of Medicine in Collaboration with HCA Healthcare


 

Nashville's stalwart reputation as the nation's health care capital grows even stronger today. Belmont University announced this morning its intent to start a new College of Medicine in collaboration with with one of the nation's leading healthcare providers, HCA Healthcare. HCA Healthcare's Nashville-based TriStar Health will provide clinical elements in support of Belmont's plans to pursue Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation for the new college.

Sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association, LCME is the nationally recognized accrediting authority for medical education programs leading to the M.D. degree in the U.S. (and Canada). Belmont College of Medicine would seek to become the nation's 156th LCME-accredited medical school, and its graduates would be well positioned to help fill the significant physician gap anticipated to be felt between now and 2033.

Video of this morning's press conference may be found on the University's Facebook page.
