12 U H Hilo pharmacy graduates headshots

Twelve students and alumni from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy (DKICP) have successfully secured positions in postgraduate residency programs across the country through a rigorous national process. Facilitated by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the annual event, dubbed Match Day, orchestrates the placement of qualified candidates into coveted postgraduate year one (PGY1) or postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency programs at various hospitals and healthcare institutions nationwide.

“We are very pleased that 86% of our students matched in this highly competitive process,” said DKICP Dean Rae Matsumoto. “That’s a high percentage, reflecting the quality of our students and their achievements in academics, service and scholarship over their four-year career here at the DKICP and beyond. On behalf of the faculty and staff, I congratulate them for their incredible efforts.”

Students and graduates will begin their respective PGY1 work this summer.
