The Academic Program

The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (DFMCH) is focused on community-based collaborations to improve patient outcomes across the lifecycle through direct clinical care, primary care workforce development, and research. The department has a particular focus on caring for cross-cultural, rural, and under-served communities in Hawai‘i and throughout the Pacific. The department, in conjunction with our partner hospitals, sponsors a three-year ACGME accredited Family Medicine Residency Program and a one-year ACGME accredited Sports Medicine Fellowship.

Teaching goals for students, residents, and fellows are based on a philosophy of contextualized care that understands health and illness in relation to the individual, family, and community, and responds not only to episodes of illness, but also attempts to understand and address the broader social determinants of health. Medical student instruction focuses on basic conceptual tools and clinical strategies in real world settings through community based preceptorships.
