Family Medicine Residency Program
Aloha and welcome to the Tripler Army Medical Center Family Medicine
Residency webpage! We are excited that you are interested in our program
and we would love to have you join us for a rotation or a phone
interview if you are interested in Family Medicine.
Located on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii, Tripler’s Family Medicine Residency Program offers an outstanding training program, which will prepare you to become the best family physician you can be. We have a proud tradition of training outstanding Family Physicians since 1991.
We have some of the most well-trained faculty of any Family Medicine Program in the nation. We are blessed with staff consisting of: two faculty with Masters in Public Health degrees and research experience, two Sports Medicine fellowship- trained physicians, one geriatrics fellowship-trained staff physician, three Faculty Development trained-physicians, and one adjunct faculty who is a Primary Care Colonoscopy-trained physician.
Our residents and faculty share many exciting times together from Wednesday morning flag football, dodgeball, or ultimate Frisbee, to Soccer Thursdays. We offer quarterly simulation training (affectionately called “Simulation Olympics”) for our residents, led by our outstanding faculty. We also have get-togethers on a regular basis, which builds team morale and camaraderie.
One of the things that sets our program apart from many others is our humanitarian missions. Most of our residents get an opportunity to travel to an Asian country to work in an austere environment and provide medical care to a population that suffers from inadequate healthcare. These humanitarian missions are supported by faculty physicians and are an incredible opportunity that few residency programs can provide.
For the osteopathic students out there, we also have a fully functional OMT clinic that receives referrals from all providers in our clinic. You will have ample opportunity to hone your OMT skills with faculty preceptor support.
If you are selected to join our residency program, I can guarantee you that you will receive best training the Army has to offer and will graduate as a family physician fully prepared to serve the Soldiers and families in the U.S. Army and around the world.
We’d like to invite you to see what our residency program has to offer. Please click on the links to learn more about our program. You can also visit the Uniformed Services Academy of Family Physicians website for a Power Point presentation on our program and more information. Feel free to email me if you would like a copy of our three-year rotation schedule and the most up to date Power Point presentation that summarizes our program.
