"News & Issues" piece on Maine Medical Center's School of Medical Technology, which is closing in June due to budget pressures and declining enrollment, according to Wayne Clark, associate vice president for community relations. Enrollment has dropped from 15 ten years ago, to three this past year, Clark said, but the cost of running the program has remained constant at $100,000. The state's only other training facility for four-year students seeking a one-year internship program is the Eastern Maine Medical Center's (EMMC) School of Medical Technology, which takes only six students a year. But EMMC's Program Director Ellen Libby fears Maine may soon be unable to produce enough medical technologists for the future because the intern program she oversees may also soon be dropped.
