HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii's John A. Burns School of Medicine said it will be graduating a record number of Native Hawaiian medical students today.
The school said a dozen of this year's 58 new physicians are Native Hawaiians.
The convocation ceremony for the graduating doctors is scheduled for 9 a.m. today at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
By tradition, 90 percent of all students attending the school's medical program are Hawaii residents.
Physicians in the Class of 2010 will continue training in specialties they have chosen.
