Program Description

The National Capital Consortium Pediatric Residency, located at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, is the only tri-service military pediatric training program. The NCC Pediatric Residency traces its heritage to the pediatric training programs founded in 1949 at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center by Col. Ogden Bruton, M.D. and in 1954 at the National Naval Medical Center. The programs combined in 1995, and the hospitals completed the integration in 2011 with the dedication of WRNMMC. The program and its faculty have a distinguished track record of training pediatricians who have proven themselves capable of caring for children in any environment.
