Mānoa’s John A. Burns School of Medicine second-year medical students continue to excel at the national level. For the second year in a row, every one of the second-year medical students passed the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam, step 1. Their mean score is also remarkable. The students from JABSOM are on track to exceed the national average for the seventh year in a row.

“The commitment our students have toward becoming wonderful physicians who will care for the people of Hawaiʻi is the major reason for their success,” says Damon Sakai, director of the Office of Medical Education. “Again and again we find that JABSOM medical students are as good as any in the world.”
