MU medical school faces probation

COLUMBIA — The MU School of Medicine faces probation by a national accreditation council.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education alerted the school to its decision in April. Medical school officials say they were not given a reason why. A council official said the group has 60 days from its decision to outline specific concerns.

Spokeswoman Julie Jacob said the decision "shouldn't be a problem" for current students "unless (Missouri) cannot correct its problems."

Medical residents must graduate from council-accredited schools to be eligible for board certification exams.
