WHERE DOES HRP FIT IN GME?
Graduate medical education is the period of time during which medical school graduates train in a residency/fellowship program to obtain further education in the specialty of their choice primarily in the clinical setting. It is the last stage in the development of a doctor from a student to an independently practicing physician. During this time residents/fellows are still considered trainees and are always under supervision (direct or indirect) of an attending physician.
The University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (UH JABSOM) oversees the residency and fellowship programs listed on this website. HRP works together with UH JABSOM and provides administrative support and employment of the residents/fellows.
