Education is itself a specialty at Children's National. Through internships, residency, fellowships, graduate medical education and continuing medical education, we are teaching the next generation of doctors and nurses.
We have more than 50 faculty members with a master’s degree in medical education. But our faculty not only teach, they conduct research to develop the most innovative and effective teaching strategies.
In fact, our educators have won the Pediatric Academic Society’s Teaching Program Award, its highest programmatic honor. We’ve also earned the prestigious Ray E. Helfer Award for Innovation in Medical Education four times.
The quality of our program makes Children’s National a top pick for pediatric residency applicants. Two-thirds of all fourth-year medical students who apply for pediatric residency nationwide apply to Children’s National — demonstrating the amazing recognition for our institution at a national level.
We also teach 150 subspecialty fellows through our 30 nationally recognized fellowship programs, including new programs in:
- Pain Medicine
- Neurocritical Care
- Cardiac Intensive Care Medicine
- Cardiac Anesthesia
