(KSL News) The University of Utah Medical school is considering cutting costs by accepting fewer students.

The dean of the school says the elimination of a single student position saves the school about $60,000.

That money could come in handy as the school faces budget cuts from the state and the loss of millions in Medicaid funds.

Currently there are just over 400 students at the school. It is unknown how many may be affected by enrollment cuts.
