Club Mission: “Our goal is to provide opportunities for undergraduates at UH Hilo to become well rounded applicants to medical school. We want them to be informed so that their application is seen as viable during their cycle. 27% did not passed the academic screen for medical school in Hawaii County, meaning their application never made it to committee. We would like to change that.”
