ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Saint Louis University’s School of Medicine is put on probation by the accrediting body for medical education, which cites issues like curriculum and documentation.

SLU Medical School dean Kevin Behrens says the school takes ownership of the issues, and emphasizes it remains accredited in the meantime.

“Students can certainly take their national board exams, they can certainly apply and get positions in graduate medical education,” he says.

SLU is putting together work groups of students, graduates, staff and experts to address each problem.

Behrens says they’ll address, one-by-one, the issues raised by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
