They meetings have been well attended and have generated some good discussion, which will be taken into account and will factor in to the administration’s final recommendation to the Board of Regents.

Jumpstart for students interested in medical school
Starting next year, selected Manoa students will be able to jump-start their medical education with special academic support and tuition-paid scholarships. Up to 10 first-year students entering in fall 2012 will also be accepted into the John A. Burns School of Medicine contingent on successful completion of their baccalaureate degree.
These JABSOM Scholars will join Manoa’s undergraduate Honors College and a special peer-mentored residential learning community; enroll in an intensive pre-medical curriculum; receive mentoring from JABSOM alumni; and participate in summer clinical, research and service internships. They will receive scholarships covering undergraduate tuition costs for four years. Manoa joins 43 other universities that offer this combined bachelor’s-MD program to build strong educational pathways and address the state’s workforce needs.
