N.S. Liberals call for free medical school tuition

The Liberal Party of Nova Scotia is calling for a program that would encourage medical school grads to stay in the province after graduation.

The initiative would provide funding to pay for students’ tuition and some living costs in exchange for five years of service. Funding would be available to 20 medical students per year from Dalhousie University in Halifax. It would cover five years of medical school training.

The program was proposed at the Annual General Meeting this weekend in Halifax. The Liberal Party is currently the official opposition.

We’ll have to wait and see how far the resolutions passed at the meeting really go. After all, the party also passed a resolution calling on the province to pay for sex change operations.
