Thirty-nine future doctors at the University of Hawaiʻi John A Burns School of Medicine are participating in a five-month training program at medical offices, clinics and hospitals across the state.

The clerkship program places third-year medical students at a single location for the duration where they learn from six faculty physicians or preceptors.

Twenty-four of the students are stationed on Oʻahu this year, and 15 students are residing and training on the neighbor islands.

Medical School administrators say the longer-term training allows medical students to get intensive one-on-one mentoring from the physician they are paired with, while students witness a continuity of patient care over a period of time.
