UT Med School in San Antonio Put on Probation

SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ A medical school accreditation panel has placed a San Antonio medical school on probation.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that students and faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio learned of the decision in an email Monday.

According to the newspaper, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education notified the school in an Oct. 14 letter of 11 deficiencies in how medical students are taught and how faculty members are supervised.

School officials have two years to correct the problems or risk losing their accreditation.

The medical school’s dean, Dr. Francisco Gonzalez-Scarano, told the newspaper that the probation presents a challenge. However, he and Dr. William Henrich, president of the health science center, said they don’t believe the probationary status will scare off quality students.
