Today, everyone can have a bad hair day and no one will know. We are wearing hats for our 2nd Annual Hat Day at JABSOM on Tuesday, September 3. Jared Shimamoto of OIT and Pomai Uchibori of Office of Hospital & External Business Affairs were among the John A. Burns School of Medicine employees getting in the spirit.
The occasion is to welcome back the MS-2′s, our second-year medical students, who are the final group of students to return to campus this new academic year.
We are “Tipping our Hats” to you, MS-2′s!
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.)
