About the Position:

This position is located in the General Pediatrics Service, Department of Pediatrics at the Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii.

Honolulu is where the timeless radiance of the islands meets the modern luxuries of today. Residents can hike down a lush mountainside, just minutes away from a soaring cityscape or feast at a luau under the stars one night, and dine at a five-star restaurant another. Located on Oahu, Honolulu is home to the majority of the state’s diverse population. Residents enjoy extensive shopping, medical, continuing education, and year-round recreation opportunities.

Hawaii has many outdoor activities all year round including surfing, paddling, diving, fishing, and hiking. Conversely, Hawaii has one of the highest costs of living in the United States. Average homes range from $500 - $600K. The rental market is also very high, as are vehicle operating costs. Before deciding to relocate to the Islands, you should thoroughly research the housing options and costs.

Federal employees in Hawaii are currently entitled to receive a 12.25% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) in addition to the base salary.  This is subject to change.
