Molokai Students Enter UH Medical School

UH News Release

Two students from Molokai are among 66 new students selected to enter the John A. Burns School of Medicine Class of 2015. The students, chosen from more than 1,600 applicants, received the short white coats that mark them as physicians in training during a ceremony last Friday at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel.

Molokai’s Kaimana Chow graduated from Kamehameha Schools and is a recent graduate of the UH Imi Ho`ola Post-Baccalaureate Program, a year-long intensive study for students from culturally, socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The second Molokai student, Dayton Wong, attended Molokai High Intermediate School before college.

The John A. Burns School of Medicine, part of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, trains a little over 250 students in its MD program annually, as well as another 250 post-MD trainees.
