Trainees in Research

The John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) encourages and supports trainees to engage in research.

JABSOM is committed to creating a conducive environment that encourages students and trainees, at all educational levels, to find the mentoring relationships and opportunities they need to explore research. We want students to engage in research to the level of their own interest. Collectively as a school and in connection with our health partners, we are dedicated to providing trainees with opportunities to make new discoveries that contribute to our vision of Attaining Lasting Optimal Health for All (ALOHA).

We are dedicated to strengthening the pipeline into health-related occupations. Our rich and diverse local community here in Hawaiʻi affords us the opportunity to cultivate interest in biomedical sciences and health-related occupations, with an aim to help reduce national shortages of individuals from under-represented backgrounds successful in Science and Health professions. We want to encourage interest from our local community to collaboratively better understand and solve pressing health condition that disproportionately affect our community.
