Prospective Residents and Fellows
Welcome to the website of Hawaii Residency Programs. Please use this site as a source for detailed information about each of our programs and fellowships. Contact information for the various entities is available throughout the site.
In July 1982, the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) and six major Honolulu acute care facilities established the Hawaii Residency Programs, Inc. (HRP). HRP is a not-for-profit corporation, comprised of JABSOM, The Queen's Medical Center, Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children, Kuakini Medical Center, Wahiawa General Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, Veteran's Affairs Pacific Islands Health Care System and the State Department of Health. HRP coordinates the administration of the university-directed residency training programs. HRP employs all residents and fellows under JABSOM's Institutional Sponsorship and also acts as a liaison between the programs and the affiliated hospitals.
The John A. Burns School of Medicine and the hospitals cooperatively conduct the residency programs and post-residency fellowships. This approach has proven more economical and increases benefits to the residents by involving community physicians and other health professionals in the training experience.
Residents and fellows train primarily in the major Oahu hospitals above. We encourage you to utilize the links above to each of these hospitals to appreciate the scope of training they offer for the Programs listed below. These programs offer post-graduate training to more than 230 residents and fellows in the specialties and subspecialties of Internal Medicine (including Geriatrics and Cardiovascular Disease), Surgery (including Surgical Critical Care),Orthopaedic Surgery, Family Medicine (including Sports Medicine), Psychiatry (including Geriatric, Addictions, and Child and Adolescent), Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics (including Neonatal-Perinatal) and Pathology. The Transitional Year Residency Program provides a single year of clinical experience in various disciplines such as medicine and surgery.
