"R. Out of this appropriation, $500,000 in each year from the general fund is provided in recognition of unreimbursed indigent care provided by medical school faculty separate from the care provided by the Medical College of Virginia Hospitals.  These funds are in partial support of the direct cost of the first-professional medical education program for Virginia students.  Cost study policies similar to those established in Item 175. A. shall apply to these patients and financial transactions.  The annual report required in Item 175. A. on financial activities and the qualification of patients shall be reported to the State Council of Higher Education and the Department of Planning and Budget.  The State Council and the Secretary of Education shall report to the Governor and General Assembly by November 15, 1998, on the implementation of this program and funding needs in subsequent years."

(This amendment provides additional support for undergraduate medical education at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Medicine. The additional funding follows the policy recommended by the Council of Higher Education, and the recommendations regarding medical education in the joint report submitted by the three state-support medical schools.)
