HOUSTON, Texas - HOUSTON (AP) - An accrediting group has cited more than a dozen areas of concern in placing Baylor College of Medicine in Houston on probation.
The Houston Chronicle reports the Liaison Committee on Medical Education made the formal notification Friday. The probation is based on deficiencies involving administrative processes and procedures, not instruction.
The president of the Baylor medical complex, Dr. Paul Klotman, says Baylor is still fully accredited and improvements have already been made. Klotman says the findings do not represent Baylor or the quality education provided by the institution, which could be taken off probation by early 2016.
Klotman says Baylor did not provide enough of the kind of documentation the committee sought to address certain standards, such as a need for better policies involving admissions committee conflicts of interest.
