University of Hawaii
Integrated Pediatric Residency Program
Welcome to the Community Medicine web page. This site is
designed to provide a basic introduction to community, social and cultural
factors that improve, or impede a child's access and family acceptability
Our site introduces community and cultural concepts through a case
scenario. Each module begins with web-based reading, and places you
in the role of a community Pediatrician. Please start with module one, and
proceed through module four.
Upon completion of the modules, you will accompany a Community Health
Worker providing outreach and health education to a Native Hawaiian
Community. This phase allows you to practice skills learned through
the web-based modules, and provide service to patients and communities
served by the Hawaii Dyson Initiative.
Community events are listed on this page and updated frequently.
All community events are coordinated by the UHIRP and eligible for credit
on your research requirement.
This experience is a service-learning partnership of the
Hawaii Dyson Initiative, UHIRP, and the Papakolea Community Association.
