Elk Grove medical school puts off opening until 2015
Sacramento Business Journal

California Northstate University College of Medicine has delayed its opening in Elk Grove by a year as it continues through the accreditation process.

While the university hoped to kick off classes this month, backers now say that timing was ambitious.

Staff at the new, for-profit medical school filed an application for accreditation in August 2013, but the timing is up to the accreditation body, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. The organization does not talk about specific projects, but the website lists the proposed local school among applicants for accreditation.
