1 Chapter 195 of the Revised Statutes, 1989, the Health Act, is amended by adding immediately after Section 138 the following headings and Section:
(c) authorizing the Minister, or a person designated by the regulations or the Minister, to enter into a contract with a student, or potential student, providing for, subject to subsection (4), tuition support for the student in the M.D. degree program in exchange for five years service in an area of the Province designated pursuant to clause (b);
(3) For greater certainty, nothing in this Section requires the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University to admit to its M.D. degree program a person who has entered into a contract as provided for in clause (1)(c) because that person has entered into the contract.(5) The moneys required for the purpose of this Section shall be paid out of moneys appropriated for that purpose by the Legislature.
