Hilo Medical Center is the largest hospital in the Hawaii state hospital system known as Hawaii Health System Corporation (HHSC) and sponsors the Primary Care Training Program (PCTP). The PCTP was launched with strong local and state support and is fully invested in helping to be part of the solution to Hawaii’s primary care provider shortage.
We believe the HHSC Primary Care Training Program is a great place to learn medicine as our training utilizes an intra-disciplinary team training model to train learners from medical, pharmacy, advanced practice nursing, and health psychology backgrounds. Each discipline has its own faculty within our facility. By modeling a collaborative practice within the health center, we hope to inspire all of our programs’ graduates to strongly consider team-based primary care in a patient centered health care home as their career destination. Our partners of the PCTP are listed below:
The PCTP Team:
- Hawaii Island Family Medicine Residents
- APRN Students from University of Hawaii-Hilo and University of Hawaii-Manoa
- Pharmacy Students
- Psychology Learners
