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. Children's National has received national GME Accreditation from the Accredited Council for Graduate Medical Education, reflecting our commitment to providing world-class training experience for pediatric residents. We teach clinicians how to improve child health through clinical care, education, advocacy and research.
