Detroit hospital, university to lose neurosurgery training accreditation

The Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education withdrew accreditation earlier this month for Detroit Medical Center's neurosurgery training program with Wayne State University, according to The Detroit News. The accreditation is slated to end June 30.

The ACGME withdrew accreditation following a site visit in September. Neither the ACGME nor the hospital would comment on why the program was losing its accreditation or how it could restore its credentials.

"(A)t this point, we have yet to receive detailed information outlining the reasons for the decision," a DMC spokesperson told The Detroit News.

Wayne State University School of Medicine Dean Jack Sobel, MD, told The Detroit News that the program will appeal.

The relationship between Wayne State and the hospital has deteriorated in recent years, but Dr. Sorbel said that was not the direct cause of the accreditation loss.

"The failure of the residency is a failure of one or two teaching individuals. It's not a conflict between DMC and Wayne State," he told The Detroit News.
