Brent K. Eberhard, MD
Dr. Brent K. Eberhard is a board-certified pediatrician in Tanner Clinic Layton. He offers general pediatric care, but has special interest in childhood asthma and premature infants.
Dr. Eberhard, a native of Farmington, Utah, joined Tanner Clinic in 2004.
After receiving his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Weber State University, Dr. Eberhard traveled to Washington, D.C., where he earned his MD at the George Washington University School of Medicine, one of the nation’s oldest medical schools. It’s also the most-applied-to medical school, admitting only 2 percent of applicants.
Dr. Eberhard completed his residency in pediatrics at the Columbus (Ohio) Children’s Hospital, now known as Nationwide Children’s Hospital, one of the largest and most comprehensive pediatric hospitals and research institutes in the United States. During his residency, he received the Resident Teaching Award in pediatrics from the School of Medicine at Ohio State University.
Dr. Eberhard chose pediatrics because, he said, “I consider infants a miracle, and I’ve always considered their ability to learn and develop to be fascinating and miraculous.”
Dr. Eberhard, who has four sons among his six children, is active in his local scouting program in Kaysville. He also spends as much time as possible in the outdoors, and counts among his hobbies canyoneering, mountain biking and kayaking. As a piano and French horn player himself, his home is a musical one.
