Program Description

Welcome to the National Capital Consortium (NCC) Internal Medicine (IM)/Psychiatry Residency! This program is the only of its kind in the Department of Defense, and it is amongst the few combined training programs in the country. The IM/Psychiatry Residency trains its residents to become board-certified Internists and Psychiatrists through excellent clinical experiences at both the “President’s Hospital” and high-volume, high-acuity facilities in the community and other military treatment facilities, including the DC Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center, Washington Hospital Center (WHC), Virginia Hospital Center (VHC), INOVA Fairfax, Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute (NVMHI), Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC), A. T. Augusta Military Medical Center (ATAMMC) at Fort Belvoir, and Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH) at Fort Campbell. The combined specialty environment provides a unique perspective on whole-body medicine, training residents to take care of both medically and psychiatrically complex patients. When not in the clinical environment, residents can enjoy all that our nation’s capital has to offer, including world-class monuments, museums, parks, dining, music, sporting, and so much more! At the end of their five-year training, residents are not only proficient in clinical skills, but also in leadership development, teaching acumen, and scholarship. We appreciate your consideration of joining our “Med-Psych” family!
