Patient Care

The John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) is proud to have provided training for half of the physicians currently practicing medicine in our state. You may find them in offices or hospitals throughout the State, caring for the people of Hawaiʻi. The quality of these doctors is something we are pleased about, too. Every year, nearly 80% of the physicians on the annual “Top Doctors of Hawaiʻi” either trained or teach at The University of Hawaiʻi medical school.

Learning to practice medicine begins in the classroom but soon transitions into actual patient care responsibilities under the supervision of our expert clinical faculty. That is why it is important for our teaching faculty to be practicing medicine in a variety of clinics and hospitals across the state.

Nearly 20 years ago, University Clinical, Education and Research Associates (UCERA) was created to support the missions of the University of Hawaiʻi (UH) John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) by managing the clinical practices of its doctors. Today, as UNIVERSITY HEALTH PARTNERS OF HAWAIʻI, we also support clinical teaching and research activities within the UH School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene and the UH Cancer Center.
