Dal med school funding cut made in error

May 12, 2010

Nova Scotia's health minister says poor paperwork led to a $2.5-million cut in funding to Dalhousie University's medical school. The minister says the confusion will be cleared up as soon as possible and funding will be forthcoming to the school. Dal officials are warning that the medical school could lose its licence to train physicians because of the 8% cut in its operating budget, as the school is facing accreditation challenges. CBC
