Pediatric Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Residency Program at Children's National Hospital. Our mission is to provide world-class training to pediatric residents in a nurturing environment in order to improve child health from a local, regional, national and global perspective through clinical care, education, advocacy and research.

We offer residents unmatched opportunities to care for a diverse patient population in the nation’s capital and the surrounding area, to participate in innovative educational programs, to participate in novel research experiences, and to advocate for children’s health on a local and national level. Through family-centered, interdisciplinary, and evidence-based care, residents develop strong and compassionate clinical acumen with robust opportunities to hone their expertise as educators, researchers, and child-health advocates. Our residents graduate well-equipped to enter careers in primary care, subspecialties and a variety of careers in health policy, global health, research and advocacy.
