Tripler Hospital Shadowing Program
By becoming trained as a Red Cross volunteer at Tripler, you are able to shadow any physician at Tripler (assuming they are willing). You will have access to the Tripler physician directory and will be able to request to shadow the physician of your choice as a “volunteer”. If you have any questions about the process, email MSMP. Download Volunteer Pamphlet
