Pediatric Residency Training
"We're it for this side of the earth."
James W. Bass, COL (R)
Pediatric residency training began at Tripler Army Medical Center more than 40 years ago with COL (Dr) Ogden Bruton as the program director. Since then, hundreds of pediatricians have been trained and find themselves as leaders in military and civilian pediatrics today. Tripler is the referral center for military facilities ranging from Guam to Japan and also has Global Health Engagement Opportunities via partnerships throughout the Pacific. The opportunity to evaluate and care for children with unusual tropical diseases and a close affiliation with an excellent children's hospital provide for a challenging, comprehensive pediatric training program.
