They lost their Step 2 accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) earlier this year and now are currently in Step 1 of the accreditation process. They were originally planning on accepting their first class for fall 2009 but due to some "setbacks," they lost part of their initial accreditation status from LCME and plan on accepting their first class for fall 2010, at the earliest.
Wow I had no ideaThe Touro MD school in NJ might not open, since they are trying to buy NYMC. If they do succeed in taking over NYMC, they won't be building their MD School in NJ. Apparently, it costs more for Touro to build a school from the ground up rather than to just buy out NYMC.
Meh. Lots of counties don't have med schools.Well that would be sad, north Bergen County still needs a medschool.
