Overview Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program at Children's National Medical Center!

The mission of the pediatric residency program at Children's National Medical Center is to provide world-class education and training to pediatric residents in a nurturing environment in order to improve child health from a local, regional, national, and global perspective through clinical care, education, advocacy, and research.

Like most large residency programs based at free-standing children's hospitals, our program provides residents with extensive training in pediatric subspecialty care, as well as providing a superb foundation in general pediatrics.  Upon completion of our program, residents are ready to pursue careers in all areas of pediatrics, from general to subspecialty practice, from health policy to global health advocacy; however, Children's National has many distinctive features which have helped contribute to our reputation as one of the leaders for the care of children and training in pediatrics. Please use this website to learn more about all that our program has to offer.
