Program Description

Our residents and faculty are our greatest resource, and the residents drive continued positive change in the program.

The National Capital Consortium's Internal Medicine Residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) brings together the best of Military Internal Medicine. Located in the heart of federal medicine next to the National Institutes of Health and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS), WRNMMC anchors an integrated military health care system with 50 ICU beds, 296 patient rooms, 40 inpatient acute psychiatric beds, 27 ER beds, a 7-story outpatient building, a gym, and a pool.

The multiservice (Army/Navy/Air Force/Public Health Service) NCC-IM residency program is a 3-year program that offers internal medicine and subspecialty training. We are a busy academic medical center with a dedicated teaching faculty and a history of excellence in clinical education and research. Given our proximity to USUHS, our residents have many opportunities to teach and mentor medical students in the pre-clerkship and clerkship timeframes. Our patients include wounded warriors, military beneficiaries, veterans, foreign dignitaries, and our nation's leaders. Ultimately, we train residents to be leaders in military medicine and primary and specialty care.

On the outskirts of Washington D.C., WRNMMC is within easy reach of the National Zoo and Mall, many sporting venues/restaurants, and numerous historic/military sites. It is conveniently located on the D.C. Metro on the Red Line at the Medical Center stop.
