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., 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 an Emergency Medical Technician. After a brief stint in TV news and film production, he followed his dream and went 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., returned to Jackson Hole in 2008 with his wife Carolyn and son Zack.

Jim embraces a patient-centric philosophy of medicine, believing passionately in a strong doctor-patient collaboration and the treatment of the whole person. He has special interests in sports and wilderness medicine, aviation medicine, pediatric care, and urgent care for 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 the Civil Air Patrol.
