This week, the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s school of medicine was notified that the Liaison Committee on Medical Education granted the College of Medicine provisional accreditation status.
This accreditation means that they’re on the path to becoming a fully accredited program within the next two years.
“You know this is a very important step in achieving full accreditation. “We look forward to that. Full accreditation provides us an opportunity in the future to expand our class sizes— more students from the Valley to study and achieve their dreams of becoming physicians,” said UTRGV School of Medicine Professor Dr. Leonel Vela.
