University Health Partners of Hawaii (UHP - formerly known as UCERA) is the medical faculty practice composed of the doctors who teach at UH’s John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). These are the physicians who instruct and supervise medical students, interns, and residents at Hawaii’s only medical school of its kind. They not only provide the latest in health care to the people of Hawaii, they keep doctors here in our island home, since physicians tend to practice medicine where they do their training. So when you see a UHP doctor, you are actually helping to strengthen our island communities and insure that the people of Hawaii receive high quality healthcare where we live. With their central offices located at 677 Ala Moana Blvd., in the former Gold Bond Building in Kakaako, UHP doctors treat patients at over 100 locations throughout the Islands, providing services in family medicine, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics, gynecology, geriatrics, hyperbaric medicine, speech therapy and audiology, psychiatry and psychology.
