COLUMBIA — Investigators from an education oversight group will visit the MU School of Medicine next week to determine if the school should be released from probation.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Thursday that the school will host members of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education on Tuesday.
The oversight group placed the school's physician residency program on a two-year probation in April. The council said a lack of support staff caused residents to schedule patient appointments and retrieve medical records.
School officials issued a statement describing subsequent improvements to the graduate medical education program. The changes included assigning more administrative tasks to nurses, social workers, pharmacists and other workers to free up the residents for more patient care duties.
