Message from Future Chief Residents
Welcome and thanks for your interest in Children’s National! We have really loved our training experiences here as well as the opportunity to care for children in the DC metropolitan area. It has afforded us the privilege to work with a diverse, dynamic patient population, to learn from world experts in a multitude of fields, and to find our voices as advocates for our patients and their families.
From as early as intern year, Children’s National residents are encouraged to tailor their training to meet their own professional goals. Three core residency tracks (Categorical, Community Health, and Primary Care), in addition to numerous pathways, allow residents to pursue specific interests throughout training. Additionally, the REACH program allows for protected time longitudinally over the course of the residency program.
We feel that the high-volume setting, the caring clinical staff, and the outstanding faculty and fellows contribute to an unparalleled residency experience here at Children’s National. Graduates of our program take on a breadth of pursuits including primary care, subspecialty fellowships, graduate programs in fields such as nutrition and global health, and policy and advocacy work.
Finally, we’re proud of the resident family that has developed and continues to grow year after year here. Truly it is an honor to train alongside fellow residents whom we trust, respect, and admire. On top of this, we have DC and its surroundings as a venue for after work gatherings and weekend adventures. It’s a fantastic place to train!
We’re eager to meet you and tell you more. Please feel free to contact any of us with questions!
Rebecca Shay, Kirsten Orloff, Gene Peir and Maureen Banigan
