ʻImi Hoʻōla (Hawaiian for “those who seek to heal”) has played a major role in accomplishing the mission of the John A. Burns School of Medicine. ʻImi Hoʻōla is a 12-month post-baccalaureate program in the Department of Native Hawaiian Health designed to provide educational opportunities to students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are deemed capable of succeeding in medical school. Although ʻImi Hoʻōla is not limited to persons of Hawaiian, Filipino, Samoan, Chamorro or Micronesian descent, a large number of these students have demonstrated that they are from a disadvantaged background.
