More UAMS Lay Offs?

Looks like UAMS wants to cut the lean at the bottom to keep the fat at the top. It is really a shame the system has the spending priorities that it has because when I say that higher-ed is over-funded in this state I don't mean higher-ed for medical training. Indeed, as Obamacare continues its slow painful collapse I think we are going to have a bigger need than ever for student-staffed, doctor and nurse run clinics in various parts of the state as a big part of the way to fill the gap. At least we could have if we would prepare that way. Sadly, the vision isn't there because hospitals and insurance companies like the current set-up just fine- even if its unsustainable.
