Alumnus tapped to lead UH med school’s psychiatry department


The University of Hawaii’s medical school has chosen a leader for its psychiatry department.

The university said Wednesday that Dr. Anthony Paul Sison Guerrero is the first psychiatry chair of Filipino ancestry at a U.S. medical school.

He’s been serving as interim chairman since July 2012. He’s also director of the children and adolescent psychiatry division and residency training program.

In 2003, he founded the Kapiolani Behavioral Health Service, based at the Kapiolani Medical Center.

He became the psychiatry department’s executive associate chair in 2011.

The university also says he’s one of the youngest graduates ever to complete medical school at UH’s John A. Burns School of Medicine.
