Detroit Medical Center to lose neurosurgery training accreditation

Detroit Medical Center will lose accreditation for its neurosurgery training program in June after the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education denied the hospital's appeal, according to The Detroit News.

The ACGME decided to withdraw accreditation of the residency program after a site visit in September. Detroit Medical Center appealed the decision but was unable to regain accreditation.

"We have been informed by ACGME that our appeal was not successful," states a letter CEO Audrey Gregory, PhD, RN, sent to staff on Feb. 5, which was obtained by The Detroit News. "We believe that our program substantially complied with ACGME standards and that our continued efforts to optimize the program merited continued accreditation."

DMC plans to take steps in coming weeks to reestablish the residency program, a spokesperson told The Detroit News.
