About James

Dr. James "Jim" Little, Jr., spent most of his childhood in Jackson, Wyoming. His father, Dr. Jim Little, Sr., was the first pediatrician in Jackson and still practices as a pediatrician here.

Dr. Little, Jr., graduated from Jackson Hole High School and earned a bachelor's degree in television and film production at Syracuse University. During college and afterward, he developed a passion for medicine while working as a professional and volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). After a brief stint working in TV news and film production, he followed his dream and went back to medical school. In 1998, he graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he was president of his medical school class. He completed his residency training in family medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon.

After practicing family medicine in the Portland area for seven years, Dr. Little, Jr., had the opportunity to return home to Jackson Hole in 2008.

Jim embraces a patient-centric philosophy of medicine. He believes passionately in the importance of a strong doctor-patient collaboration in medical care and treating the whole person, and not just focusing on individual organs or medical conditions. He has special interests in sports and wilderness medicine, aviation medicine, pediatric care, and urgent care for children and adults of all ages. He is board certified in family medicine and is also a Senior FAA Aviation Medical Examiner.

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Little Jr. is an avid skier, volunteers as a firefighter with Jackson Fire/EMS, and flies as a search and rescue mission pilot with Civil Air Patrol.
