Dr. Thomas Kosasa ’63

In January, Dr. Thomas Kosasa ’63 was elected to the Punahou School Board of Trustees. Kosasa, a renowned infertility specialist and professor emeritus at John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) at University of Hawai‘i, is an active and dedicated supporter of the School.

“As a student, Punahou opened a whole new world for me, so I am honored to have the opportunity to participate with this great group of professionals in furthering the School’s mission,” Kosasa commented. “Education is so important – it’s what takes you forward through life and it’s what made me who I am.”

Kosasa graduated with a degree in architecture from Dartmouth College. He earned his medical degree at McGill University in Montreal, completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at Harvard Medical School. While serving in the Army, Kosasa set up an infertility clinic at Fort Benning, Georgia, before returning to Hawai‘i in 1978 to open his practice and teach as an assistant professor at JABSOM. He was awarded a full professorship in 1992. Over the years, Kosasa has actively participated in Class of 1963 activities and has been a generous donor to the School.

“Tom speaks appreciatively of his experience as a teacher and his commitment to kindling enthusiasm and curiosity for learning. With his unique outlook and long dedication to Punahou, he will be a great contributor to our Board,” said President Dr. Jim Scott ’70.
