In grateful recognition of our Clinical Faculty Members for their long standing contributions to our academic mission, the Department of Medicine has been acknowledging those who’ve served on our volunteer faculty for over 20 years. Medical students, residents, and other members of our department have been distributing service awards to our longest serving Clinical Faculty.
The University of Hawai’i Department of Medicine originated with the formation of the University of Hawai’i School of Medicine in 1966 at Leahi Hospital under the leadership of the first Chair of Medicine, Dr. Kekuni Blaisdell. Since then, the UH Department of Medicine relocated to the Queen’s Medical Center, the largest teaching hospital in Hawai’i. The Department is now comprised of 15 divisions with over 400 faculty members. The Medicine faculty are located at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, The Queen’s Medical Center, Kuakini Medical Center, Straub Medical Center, Spark Matsunaga Veteran’s Administration Medical Center, and in the community’s private medical practices.
