Curriculum & Rotation Schedule

Residents will participate in multiple rotation, one-month blocks with electives varying from 2-4 weeks. They will experience standard rotations at Moanalua Medical Center and at various clinics throughout Oahu with opportunities to experience elective rotations at various KP facilities, including the Neighbor Islands.

 

PRIMARY CARE TRAINING

In one of its goals to address the national physician shortage, especially in Primary Care, the Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program puts a strong emphasis on outpatient training. As such, the Primary Care curriculum is as rigorous as it is diverse.

There are seven 4-week blocks in our ambulatory Primary Care clinic which includes training in multiple ambulatory subspecialties including Allergy, Cardiology, Dermatology, ENT, Occupational Medicine, Orthopedics, Physiatry and Pain Management, Podiatry, Population Management, Psychiatry, Pulmonology, Quality Improvement, Sports Medicine, Urology, and Weight Management. Residents gain knowledge, skills, and experience in ambulatory Primary Care and subspecialties in Kaiser Permanente’s integrated system.
