Dr. Bear’s University

Health Priority:
Education

Serves:
Community Leaders, Government Officials, Policymakers

Dr. Bear’s University is an opportunity for community leaders, government officials, and other policymakers to experience a day behind the scenes at the Children’s National main hospital.

Members of the community get to:

  • Shadow physicians on their rounds
  • Observe the child-centered care we provide
  • Talk in-person with our patients and their families

The program works not only to educate local leaders on the care we provide for children in DC and beyond, but to turn local leaders into children’s health advocates.
