Grants for IOM Students studying medicine

Provide grants to IOM Students who wish to study medicine. If they do not return to work in IOM healthcare then this should be repayable.

Why the contribution is important

Encourage Manx students to study medicine and return to the island. This would reduce locum consultant costs and increase the knowledge base on the island. The younger population may also increase.

    The Isle of Man already covers the full tuition costs of Doctors, Dentists and Vets (although no other professions) but, as the payments are unconditional, it doesn't encourage Manx students to return.

    So I agree that making some or all of the tuition costs conditional on the student coming back and working on the Island is a good idea.
