Resources and Opportunities in the Health Services Career Pathway

Three exciting resources from the UH Manoa John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM):

  1. Speaker’s Bureau database of Health Professionals statewide that are willing to go into the classrooms and speak to the students about their professions.

  2. Medical School Tours: Vary according to school and the needs of the teachers. A typical medical school tour includes visiting the SimTiki Simulation Lab where students are able to see demonstrations on models and be a part of a hospital room simulation; the Cancer Center where they walk through the labs and meet the researchers; the Center for Cardiovascular research. Students 16 years old and above can be scheduled for anatomy lab visits where they can go in and see the anatomy lab here at JABSOM and view the different organs and parts of the body.
  3. The Hawaii Pre-Health Career Corps (PHCC) is a new 4-year program for disadvantaged and underserved students, from 11th grade to college Sophomores. Its purpose is to increase awareness about health careers, provide mentoring, shadowing and research experiences, and provide campus exposure to health careers. Students will be given progressive responsibility, with the college corps members serving as mentors for the high school students, thus providing a group support system.
