George Washington University's medical school has been taken off probation by its academic accrediting agency.

The school was put on probation in October 2008. At the time, G.W. said the problems were superficial. A document later obtained by The Washington Post showed the accrediting agency was concerned with monitoring of student's time with patients and said student debt levels were among the nation's highest.

Dean James Scott says the group has extended the school's full accreditation for eight years.

In a note to faculty and students, Scott writes the school is stronger from the review process.
