HISTORY OF HAWAII RESIDENCY PROGRAMS, INC.

Prior to 1982, the residency programs in Hawaii operated independently, each with its own affiliation agreements with the University of Hawaii and various hospitals. In 1982, HRP was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The initial members of the corporation were: The Queen’s Medical Center, St. Francis Hospital, Kuakini Medical Center, Straub Clinic and Hospital, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Kapi’olani/Children’s Medical Center.

As healthcare delivery, graduate medical education, and laws have evolved, so too has HRP. HRP and UH JABSOM remain separate, independent entities. They do, however, share the duties, responsibilities and risks of GME governance in accordance with the UH HRP First Amended Agreement signed in December 2012.

The hospital members of HRP and other participating sites provide funding to HRP for resident/fellow positions. HRP uses these funds to employ the residents and provide administrative support (including program administrators and staff), accounting, legal, human resources, media/technology, and employment resources for the residency programs and residents.
