What our residents are saying:


“Each resident in the Community Track embodies what I envisioned fellow trackers would be--smart, passionate, and truly dedicated to advocating for children outside the realm of medical wards and clinic.”


“I love the electives that are built into the curriculum and most importantly I really feel like I have learned from everyone within the track. There is great camaraderie and the diversity of the group adds so much to everyone's experience.”


“I think the community track empowers you to get involved with advocacy on different levels in Washington, DC -- both legislative (including at the national and city/state level) and grassroots -- and with different partners (non-profit groups, educational systems, professional medical groups, governmental organizations). It has some structure to it, but allows plenty of room for you to take on your own projects.”


“My decision to pursue a career as a physician was driven by a desire to provide health care to underserved communities and to those who have historically, been dwarfed by society. When looking for a residency program, it was essential that I found a training program whose goals and philosophies were in-line with my vision. Children’s National was one of the few places that I looked at that offered a CHT, focused not only on urban healthcare issues, but also on government/health policy, international health, advocacy, and research. I was thoroughly impressed by the available electives that were offered as part of this track and furthermore, by talking with individuals who were part of this program, I know I would finish my training as a more socially conscious and responsible pediatrician for the community. Everyday, I learn so much from my electives, my patients, my co-residents and mentors. It has been a wonderful experience!”
