The University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) has been recognized for having one of the most beautiful medical school campuses in the United States.
The John A. Burns School of Medicine was named the third most beautiful medical school in the country by BestMedicalDegrees.com, only surpassed by the medical schools at the University of Vermont and Boston University. JABSOM outranked medical schools at Harvard and Dartmouth, who rounded out the top five.
“The laboratories, faculty and programs at the John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaiʻi are certainly worth the consideration of future medical professionals,” according to BestMedicalDegrees.com.
JABSOM's Kakaʻako complex was completed in 2005, and constructed with $150 million in Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement monies appropriated by the Hawaiʻi State Legislature.
“Every day we are grateful to the leaders and citizens of Hawaiʻi for supporting the medical school, and since about half the physicians currently treating patients in Hawaiʻi were trained at JABSOM, every day their work includes both educating patients about the dangers of tobacco use and treating patients sufferring from smoking-related diseases (including those attributed to second-hand smoke),” said Jerris Hedges, John A. Burns School of Medicine dean.
