LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine has received regional and institutional accreditation that officials say could allow them to expand their programs in the future.

The Lewisburg school says it has received full accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission following a five-year process.

While the school has been fully accredited by the American Osteopathic Association since 1978, officials sought voluntary accreditation to strengthen its profile.

The Charleston Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1zGxPGC) that the school upgraded some of its policies as a result of the evaluation.

The Higher Learning Commission will perform another site visit in four years.
