Free Medical School Proposed at UNM

GOVERNOR LUJAN GRISHAM FIRST PROPOSED TUITION-FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION FOR IN-STATE STUDENTS AT NEW MEXICO COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. NOW, THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO’S MEDICAL SCHOOL IS PROPOSING TUITION-FREE SCHOOL TO BRING BACK STUDENTS WHO’VE BEEN TRAINED IN OTHER STATES. THEIR PROPOSAL WOULD REQUIRE THOSE STUDENTS TO STAY IN NEW MEXICO FOR FOUR YEARS TO PROVIDE MEDICAL SERVICES. THAT’S SINCE THE STATE’S BEEN STEADILY LOSING IT DOCTORS.

IT COSTS 16-THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR FULL TUITION AND DR. PAUL ROTH, THE DEAN OF UNM’S MEDICAL SCHOOL, SAYS THEY’LL ASK THE LEGISLATURE FOR 6-MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO PAY FOR THE PLAN.
