Family Planning

All women in Hawai‘i should be able to make reproductive decisions that are consistent with their own values. The physicians of the Division of Family Planning provide medical and surgical abortion services and miscarriage management to women throughout Hawai‘i. With three Family Planning fellowship trained physicians, we also provide comprehensive contraceptive services and specialize in innovative contraceptive technologies.

We are well-equipped to provide care to patients with complex medical issues. We receive referrals from across the state and are expanding telemedicine services to provide improved access to women living on the neighbor islands. We are committed to train the next generation of physicians. In 2006 we established the Ryan Residency Training Program, and in 2011, we were accredited for a Family Planning Fellowship. Our graduated fellows are considered experts in their field both in Hawai‘i and throughout the world.

We are also leaders in family planning research. In 2017, the Women’s Health Research Center was awarded more than 2.3 million dollars in family planning research funding, bringing cutting-edge research to benefit the women of Hawai‘i.

The Family Planning division faculty see patients for the full spectrum of ob-gyn care as well as for family planning-specific visits. More information about clinical services can be found at
