Where We Work

Children’s National Health System - Main Campus

Children’s National Health System is the main training site for our residency program. Most of your inpatient and intensive care months will be here, as well as your time in the Children’s National Emergency Department. Children’s National has more than 360,000 visits each year by patients who come from throughout the city, region, nation, and world. Children’s is the largest provider of pediatric care in the District of Columbia and serves as an advocate for all children, providing more than $50 million in uncompensated care. Children's also serves as the regional referral center for pediatric emergency, trauma, cancer, cardiac and critical care, as well as neonatology, orthopaedic surgery, neurology, and neurosurgery.
