About the North Pacific Pediatric Society

The North Pacific Pediatric Society began in 1919 and is one of the oldest international pediatric associations in America, antedating even the American Academy of Pediatrics. The NPPS membership is composed of northwest pediatricians and other medical professionals with a primary interest in the health of children.

As NPPS members, we feel very strongly about the health, safety, and welfare of all children. Since 1919, NPPS has been on the forefront of advocating for children of all economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds. As a result, the bi-annual Scientific Conferences of North Pacific Pediatric Society are a first choice for a memorable experience combining destinations, education and pediatrics.


With a long history of success since 1919, the North Pacific Pediatric Society has a rich tradition of caring about the health of our children and about the professionals who provide that care.

The NPPS membership is composed of medical personnel from all over the United States and Canada, with the majority being from the North Pacific area (the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan; and, from the States of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington).


1.      Promote a higher quality of pediatric medical care to children of all ages.
2.      Provide up to date, cutting-edge continuing medical education for all the professionals that deliver pediatric health care.
3.      Provide a valuable forum for the sharing, discussing, and dissemination of the ideas, concepts, and concerns, of the pediatric health care provider in small group conferences,
4.      Provide an on-going, effective bridge between the local health care provider and the regional Medical Institutions and their Residency Training Programs.
