TRAINING AND EDUCATION INFORMATION
- Tripler Directorate of Health Education and Training (DOHET) is a resource for all hospital education, training and staff development, excluding Graduate Medical Education. DOHET centralized a variety of educational programs into one convenient location.
- Clinical rotation and practicum are limited to students enrolled in formal education and training programs at an accredited school or institution.
- An affiliation agreement must be in place between Tripler and the student's school or institution before the student may train at TAMC.
- Army medicine and civilian education both benefit from an exchange of information and clinical expertise.
- Training affiliation programs can improve this exchange, reflect favorably on military medicine, and encourage civilian health care providers to explore careers in the AMEDD.
- Training affiliation programs must serve the best interest of the Army and must not detract from the medical mission of the Army medical facility or the education and training needs of AMEDD personnel.
- Special programs for the sole benefit of the education institution or its trainees will not be established.
- Any work benefits derived are incidental to training.
- Department should check with the Graduate Medical Education office to ensure that an affiliation agreement is in effect or is established between Tripler and the student's school prior to start of training.
