March marks “match madness” month at University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy when graduating or recently graduated students applying for post-graduate programs receive first-round results from medical and educational institutions across the country. Fourteen pharmacy students were selected and accepted invitations from participating programs.

This year’s round one results produced a strong showing for the pharmacy college, with 50 percent of post-graduate year-one applicants matched, and two out of three post-graduate year-two applicants matched in the first round.

“These impressive results demonstrate the highest quality of these students’ academics, service and scholarship over their four-year career here,” says Miriam Mobley Smith, the college’s interim dean. “On behalf of faculty and staff, we congratulate them all. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments.”
