St. Louis Post-Dispatch, May 8, 2009
The reputation of the University of Missouri-Columbia's medical school and its recruitment efforts could suffer after it landed on a short list of programs with serious shortcomings. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education placed the doctors' residency program at the school on a two-year probation based on an on-site review and interviews from 2008. Probations of entire institutions by the council are rare. MU is one of just five teaching hospitals out of 386 nationwide currently under the disciplinary action.
