The University of Technology and the Ministry of Health have come to an agreement which will see the resumption of its Environmental Health internship programme.
Under the agreement, the Health Ministry will pay for 32 of the 41 students currently enrolled.
U-TECH will absorb the cost of the internships for the remaining nine students.
The internships are expected to cost some 19-million-dollars, of which the Ministry is to cover just under eighty percent.
Head of U-TECH’s School of Public Health and Health Technology, Professor Winston Davidson told Nationwide News today, that expects the arrangement to hold for the next three sets of students.
Professor Davidson says he wishes to allay any anxiety or fears students may have about their internship.
However, Professor Davidson says they may have to revise the cost bourne by students in the future.
He says deliberations with the Ministry will continue early next year.
