9 Reasons for not participating this year: Focused on LCME Site Visit Curriculum Review/Renewal/Change Just started working with new curriculum management system so did not have data completely entered / organized Do not have system / have not decided on a vendor yet / do not have technical staff Change in leadership / staff – needed time to come up to speed Concerns about Verification Report Vendor did not upload as planned 2012-2013 Upload Process
