New York City Hospitals In Scholarship Deal With Grenada Medical School. The New York Times (4/5, A18, Hartocollis, Subscription Publication) reports that during "the last few years, St. George's University Medical School on the Caribbean island of Grenada has come under fire from New York City medical schools for paying to have its students trained in the city's public hospitals, turning what local schools say should be an academic relationship into a fiscal one." According to the Times, "St. George's and the city's public hospitals are" now "further cementing their financial relationship with a deal that will provide $11 million in scholarships for New Yorkers to attend St. George's over the next five years." In return, "they must promise to work as primary care physicians in the city's hospitals after graduation." Of course, they have to somehow get those primary care residency slots... Expect NYC taxes to increase more because of this bad investment.
