Education Focused on the Future

At Children's National Hospital, our internships, residency programs, fellowships, graduate medical education and continuing medical education offer providers ample opportunities to develop skills that will enable them to provide the best possible care to children. With more than 50 faculty members with a master’s degree in medical education, our faculty not only teaches, but also conducts research to develop the most innovative and effective teaching strategies.

In fact, our educators are consistently recognized for their excellence.

We teach clinicians how to improve child health through clinical care, education, advocacy and research.
