Areas of Focus
Children’s National Hospital is committed to providing high-quality education for future pediatric providers and specialists. We are proud of our residency’s excellence in the following area!
We place the highest priority on resident education, with a multitude of conferences and educational opportunities. A large portion of our faculty has graduate level education in teaching, enriching the educational experience at our program.
A leader in preeminent research, Children's National offers multiple opportunities for residents to engage in a variety of different areas of research.
One of the many advantages of our location is the convergence of several child advocacy organizations in the nation’s capital. Children’s Health Advocacy Institute (CHAI) is housed under Children's National Hospital and offers residents unique opportunities to be involved in advocacy.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Children’s National aims to attract applicants who are from diverse backgrounds, in many respects including ethnicity, nationality, and sexual orientation as diversity enhances our learning and fosters a climate for educational and patient care excellence.
We know that residency can be challenging at times. Our program has numerous initiatives to help our residents prioritize their wellness, maintain a healthy work-life balance and enhance the skills they will need in order to care for themselves throughout their careers.
