UH to admit medical technology students again

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - Donations are enabling the University of Hawaii to once again admit students to its medical technology baccalaureate degree program.

Clinical Laboratories of Hawaii and Diagnostic Laboratory Services saved the program with $100,000 in donations to the university.

The money is allowing the John A. Burns School of Medicine to support a full-time faculty member for the next two years.

State budget cuts forced the school's Medical Technology Department to stop admitting new baccalaureate students last summer.

The university since sought private support for the program.
