Where We Work

  • Children’s National Health System (Main Hospital) 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. We also serve as the regional referral center for pediatric emergency, trauma, cancer, cardiac and critical care, as well as neonatology, orthopaedic surgery, neurology, and neurosurgery.
  • Holy Cross Hospital is a community hospital in Silver Spring, MD, where residents are exposed to general academic acute care and well nursery care. During your internship year, you will spend one month in the newborn nursery at Holy Cross Hospital, learning the basics of newborn care. During your second year, you will spend time in the hospital’s 26-bed pediatric unit where you will experience community-based pediatrics first-hand. Holy Cross Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Maryland. It is located just north of Washington, DC, and near the Capital Beltway. It is accessible to Metro. The hospital primarily serves residents of the state’s two largest jurisdictions, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.
  • George Washington University Hospital is a large academic hospital located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of the District. Residents rotate through the NICU and attend deliveries here. It is an advanced facility equipped to treat premature infants and term newborns, with care for high-risk neonates including: noninvasive nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), mechanical ventilation, high frequency oscillation, and nitric oxide inhalation therapy.
  • Children’s National Outpatient Centers are scattered throughout the Washington, DC, metropolitan region, offering subspecialty care to those who live near and far.  While residents spend most of their time on the main campus, they have the opportunities during many rotations to see these facilities. 
  • Children’s National Primary Care Practices are the locations for many of our resident continuity clinics and serve as medical homes for our surrounding community.
