ALL SIGNS POINT TOWARD a great academic year!

We thought you’d enjoy seeing the “UH medical school” traffic sign, as we direct you to some of the events ahead. Our second-year MD students (Class of 2016) will return to class on September 3, making us “whole” again at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). We’ll have the second annual “HAT DAY” on that Tuesday, to “tip our hats” and welcome them back. So start pondering what head gear you’d like to wear!

Our third-year medical students, the MS-3’s (Class of 2015), have been toiling in clinical rotations since July, so they probably see traffic signs in their sleep, as their brains try to map out which of our community hospital partner sites they’ll be heading to next. (Is it Queen’s for surgery, medicine or psychiatry? Or Kuakini for Geriatric Medicine? Or Kapi’olani for OB-GYN or Pediatrics? Or Wahiawa for Family Medicine? Or, via plane to Hilo or Waimea on Hawai`i Island or on Maui or Kaua`i?)

Our new MS-1’s (The Class of 2017) are busy discovering the rigors and rewards of academic medicine, having started in mid-July, too, a few days before they received their White Coats.

And our MD Residents? Well, they’re likely too busy to ever see this news post! Happy 2013-2014 to everyone in the JABSOM `Ohana. (You, too…Communication Sciences & Disorders, Medical Technology, Biomedical sciences graduate students and Public Health.)
