LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The University of Louisville School of Medicine has been placed on probation by its accrediting body.

The Courier-Journal reported school has two years to make changes in nine areas of concern found during an April 2013 visit by a Liaison Committee on Medical Education team before the status can be lifted. While the changes are made, the program remains fully accredited.

Medical school dean Dr. Toni Ganzel said in a statement she was disappointed with the status finding, most of those issues have already been addressed in the last year or will be 2014-2015 school year.

The university plans to formally submit an action plan to Liaison Committee on Medical Education in October and anticipates a follow-up site review in the summer of 2015.
