According to one hospital administrator at the dinner, area hospitals have taken in medical students to allow them to finish their residency.  The University of California, Irvine, has done the same thing, and admitted (in a hurry) 50 California students that were enrolled in universities in the stricken area and headed that direction for school this fall, only to be turned back.  A vice chancellor, he said that UCI admitted the students to get them into classes, and that the financial issues would be straightened out later.  Law schools are doing the same thing.
