Degrees provided by CMVM are subject to external accreditation, both in the Medical School and the Veterinary School:
- MBChB is accredited by the General Medical Council (GMC).
- The Veterinary Medicine degrees are accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE).
To enable this accreditation, CMVM must prove how all the criteria set out by the accreditation body are met through the teaching undertaken in the curriculum. This is currently done through a system called COMMAND, which is no longer fully fit for purpose, due to the changing accreditation requirements and the age of the technologies in use (which are approaching the end of supported life).
This is too complex to be undertaken through spreadsheets. Alternative solutions are available in the market and there is a need to find and implement a solution for each of the Schools in CMVM. Such solutions will be considered and compared with the viability of upgrading and enhancing COMMAND.
Ideally, a common solution that could fulfil the requirement of both schools is preferred as their needs appear very similar. However, if there is a need to provide separate solutions then this will be done via two future projects.
