The University of Arizona's College of Medicine in Phoenix is one step closer to getting full accreditation.
School officials announced Thursday that it has received provisional accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
UA President Ann Weaver Hart says the college and the university took the proper measures to address questions the committee had previously.
Hart says she is proud the school seems poised to be the only land-grant university with two fully accredited medical schools.
The college could get full accreditation in 2018.
UA opened the College of Medicine in Phoenix in 2007.
