FARGO, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota officials say the UND medical school is not in danger of losing its accreditation despite a warning from an agency that monitors education standards.
UND President Robert Kelley told the state Board of Higher Education on Thursday that the Liaison Committee on Medical Education found that the med school failed to meet compliance standards in 10 of 132 categories.
Kelley told the board he's confident the school can fix the problems.
Medical School dean Joshua Wynne says the school is not on probation and has one year to address the issues. He says several medical schools are facing similar questions from the accreditation agency.
The board asked Wynne to give an update when the school's action plan is completed.
