MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Central Michigan University says it has received additional accreditation as it prepares to open its medical school in summer 2013.

The university says the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has granted five-year institutional accreditation to the new medical school's residency programs associated with Covenant HealthCare and St. Mary's of Michigan.

Residency is the clinical portion in a medical specialty following graduation from medical school and prepares physicians for the independent practice of medicine.

The College of Medicine says it got 2,765 applications for its inaugural class by the Dec. 15 deadline. Sixty students will be accepted for the first class.

Last February, Central Michigan announced that it had received preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education to open the school.
