Five new internal medicine residents began their internship year at Kaiser Permanente Hawaii in June. Choosing a residency program during the COVID-19 pandemic came with additional challenges, as this was the first class for which all interviews were conducted virtually. Prior to receiving their white coats, the new interns volunteered at MedFest, doing intake and escorting Special Olympics athletes through their physicals.
