Dozens of environmental health students in the final phase of their four-year programme at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) are in danger of not graduating in November or receiving their certification. This is because of a disagreement between the institution and the Ministry of Health about how their mandatory internships will be funded. The students, who have already paid for the 14-credit internship programme, which was to commence on January 12 and run until the end of July, are now antsy.“The wait and uncertainty for the commencement of our internship programme is getting ridiculous,” one student said.
