Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science has received preliminary approval from accreditation officials to start taking applications for its own medical school program.
University officials hope to open applications for the first medical school class by the first week of November, with the goal of having a class of 60 students entering the program next summer.
The historically Black university in Willowbrook received confirmation for preliminary accreditation of its medical school curriculum from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the main officials responsible for approval. The process took five years.
