Aldrich Ricalde of Ewa Beach has joined the UH medical school’s incoming class through the Imi Ho’ola Post-Baccalaureate Program.
Aldrich is among a dozen college graduates selected for the program, which helps students overcome barriers to medical school. He was recruited as a student who shows promise but comes from a socially, educationally or economically disadvantaged background.
Ricalde first spent 12 months in an intensive course of study to improve his knowledge of science and the humanities. Successful completion equates to admission to the John A. Burns School of Medicine.
The Imi Ho’ola class was presented at the July 30 open house at the Kakaako school. Others in the 2010 program come from Guam and the Northern Marianas as well as Hawaii.
