Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Message from Current Chief Residents

We are so excited about your interest in Children’s National Hospital! As the current chief residents, we want to share with you why we love working here. We strongly believe that Children’s National offers the best combination of general pediatric and top-tier subspecialty training in one place! We consider ourselves to be the one of the best children's hospital in the region and care for a large volume and wide variety of patients from across the DC, Maryland, Virginia and beyond. There is an amazing group of educators and faculty who are truly dedicated to resident education and mentorship. Our residency program prioritizes wellness and has created a flexible curriculum that allows you to tailor your training to meet your career goals and interests. Read more about our core residency tracks (Categorical Track, Primary Care Track, Leadership in Advocacy, the Underserved, and Community Health Track and Research Track) and several residency pathways (such as Global Health and Medical Education), which help guide residents through the numerous opportunities available at Children’s National. These opportunities are complimented by our unique REACH program, which provides residents with protected longitudinal time for research and scholarship throughout residency.

If the unparalleled pediatric training you’ll receive at Children’s National isn’t enough to bring you here, then consider the exciting city life that Washington, D.C., has to offer. World-renowned museums, happy hours, brunch and live jazz on the National Mall are just a few reasons why it’s so fun to live in the nation’s capital. Truthfully though, the best part of our program is the people. Your co-residents here will become your best friends, closest confidants and some of your most effective teachers.

These are only a few of the many qualities that make learning and training at Children’s National so amazing. We look forward to meeting you and sharing more about why we love our program and are happy to call it home. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Sarah Durrin, M.D., Jessica Hippolyte, M.D., MPH, Kevin Lloyd, M.D., and Mary Mottla, M.D.
