Texas A&M dean of medicine decries budget cuts - STEVE KUHLMANN, the Eagle

After only one month on the job, Texas A&M Vice Chancellor for Health Services, Dean of the College of Medicine and Senior Vice President for the Health Science Center Carrie Byington said she already has been forced to make difficult decisions in the face of an uncertain economic climate -- including cuts to the number of students who will be admitted to the next class of Texas A&M's medical school. "Sadly, as a new dean, one of my first decisions was to cut the class size," said Byington, adding that the normally 200-student class could see up to a 25 percent reduction. With the academic year for the medical school beginning in July, Byington said she won't be able to wait on a budget process that has the potential to continue past May.
