The University at Buffalo’s dermatology residency program at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences has lost its accreditation.
The university announced Wednesday that the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education pulled the program’s accreditation effective June 30 following its annual review and site visit of the dermatology residency program at the university’s medical school.
The decision will affect eight people, who as of July 1, had committed to train in that residency program. They have all been notified.
The decision does not affect UB’s dermatology department’s academic program.
The accrediting council did not disclose the reasons for withdrawing the residency program’s accreditation.
UB officials expect further explanation to come in the next 60 days. After that occurs, the university administration plans to evaluate the program’s future structure.
