School of Medicine retains accreditation
The University of Colorado School of Medicine has retained is accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), a national organization that evaluates medical schools.

A survey team had visited the school in May; the LCME met in early October to make its decision.

The school next will submit two requested follow-up reports, the first of which is due to the LCME in December. The committee requested updated details from affiliation agreements. The second report, due in December 2012, must report progress on areas that the committee had been monitoring at the school, including funding, diversity and debt load of students.

The re-accreditation continues into the 2016-17 academic year, when the next full survey is scheduled to take place.
