Faculty/Student Recruitment & Development

Po Ľokela: excellence as a constant standard

Competitive Applicant Pool

During each year of the grant cycle, NHCOE builds a competitive
applicant pool through two programs developed to specifically
address the needs of Native Hawaiian students.  

The Native Hawaiian Student Pathway to Medicine Program (NHSPM)
and the Native Hawaiian Interdisciplinary Health Program (NHIH)
provides Native Hawaiian undergraduate and post-graduate students
with workshops, individualized academic and career guidance,
peer support, and access to a mentoring network.  Cultural 
competency is an integral component of these programs.
