Graduate Medical Education (GME) and Clinical Clerkships
- Clinical clerkship programs at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) are offered to military medical officers in the Armed Forces and medical students from accredited medical schools and schools of osteopathic medicine in the United States and Puerto Rico.
- Civilians desiring to rotate at TAMC must ensure that their school has a Memorandum of Agreement in force between their school and TAMC. Without this agreement student are not authorized to rotate until an agreement is in effect.
- United States Army policy does not permit us to accept any student from an international medical school even if the student is a United States citizen..
- Foreign students (non-US Citizens) attending medical schools in the United States who require access to the hospital's information systems network can expect at least a four-month delay in getting access due to required security background checks. The vast majority of clerkships offered at Tripler require students to obtain network access, therefore, please plan accordingly.
- Inprocessing for all students is on Monday at 0700 (7:00 A.M.). If Monday falls on a Federal holiday then inprocessing will take place on Tuesday. The TAMC Student Coordinator is located on the 9th Floor, A-Wing, Room 9A 008A and will explain the inprocessing procedures to you. Exceptions to this policy will be coordinated with the Student Coordinator in advance.
