We want to congratulate all of our graduates from the Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program on a 100% pass rate in the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Certification Examination. Their dedication to the practice of medicine is clearly demonstrated by this amazing achievement. We are elated for all of them. Kaiser Permanente Hawaii is one of only 15% of Internal Medicine residency programs in the country to achieve a 100% pass rate among their graduates over the past 3 years.
Passing the ABIM Internal Medicine Certification Examination demonstrates that physicians have met rigorous standards and have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care. All residents are required to finish training on or before August 31 in order sit for the ABIM Internal Medicine Certification Examination.
The ABIM annually reports the cumulative pass rates across the three most recent certification examinations in internal medicine for each internal medicine residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. More information can be found here.
