We partner with the National Institutes of Health, Washington Hospital Center, and Children’s National Hospital for clinical experiences. Research opportunities in the area abound and include the Infectious Disease Clinical Research Program, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Naval Medical Research Center, the Multidrug-Resistance Organism and Surveillance Network, and the Uniformed Services University for Health Sciences (USUHS).
