FIU Medical School Plans to Take Off

Read this very interesting story on FIU's plans for their new medical school, bolstered by a study which indicates that as many as 66,000 new jobs would be created by 2025.

Let's not go as far as calling this a stimulus as this is not a short term project. This is more of an investment in our community's future. I realize there are public dollars being thrown into this, but I'd like to think that a second major university medical school in South Florida could do nothing but improve our quality of life by being a center of medical research and practice, not to mention the influx of professionals tasked to carry this out. In short, a hard-to-lose situation for South Florida.

Here's a short PDF with stats. And here's the long version of the study.
