<div class="descr">It is always a thrill to see our Imi Hoola Post-Baccalaureate Program students complete their dream-admission to medical school.
The completion ceremony is a time for celebration! Each of these promising aspiring doctors was chosen because of the extraordinary person they are - and the potential they demonstrated to earn the right to succeed in medical school.
Each is from a disadvantaged background and/or is someone whose community is currently under-represented in medicine. By completing a rigorous, one-year program, the successful Imi graduates become the first new MD students accepted into the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) MD Class of 2020.
During the intensive year of medical school preparation study, the students are supported by stipends from The Queens Health Systems (QHS). QHS has invested $10 million to our University of Hawaii Native Hawaiian Health programs since 2002. The QHS support has allowed JABSOM to leverage state and federal funds and establish a nationally-recognized research division focused on reducing the disproportionately high levels of illness suffered by Native Hawaiians.
More than 200 MDs have earned their degrees through a start in the Imi program.â 40% of Native Hawaiians who graduated from JABSOM enrolled in medical school after completing the challenging year-long preparatory course offered by ʻImi Hoola. And boy, do they give back.
Once in medical school at JABSOM, 98% of the former Imi students are successfully enrolled or have graduated as MDs.
30% of Imi students are of Native Hawaiian ancestry
34% are of other Pacific Island heritage
Nearly a quarter of the students are from neighbor islands
63% of the graduates choose to specialize in primary care, the front line of health care, in fields where they are most needed.
Next stop for the newest Imi is the July White Coat Ceremony and four wonderful years (at least) on their way to careers in medicine. They earn their way into medical school and back into the communities where they are needed the most as MDs! </div>
