HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - An accrediting authority for medical education programs has removed probationary status for Marshall University's medical school.

The Huntington university says the Liaison Committee on Medical Education lifted the probation at a meeting this past week and notified school officials on Friday.

Marshall's medical school was placed on probation in June 2011 after the board cited nine standards in noncompliance, one standard in compliance with a need for monitoring and three standards in transition.

The entire time the school remained fully accredited.

A team from the accrediting authority visited this school this summer to meet with administrators, faculty and students and then reported its findings to the entire board.

President Stephen J. Kopp said Marshall and the medical school will remain vigilant and continue to set the bar for improvement higher.
