Internal Medicine Residency

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

Program Overview
The National Capital Consortium’s Internal Medicine Residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center 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, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center anchors an integrated military healthcare system, with 50 ICU beds, 296 patient rooms, 40 inpatient acute psychiatric beds, 27 ER beds, a 7-story outpatient building, and a new gym/pool. 

The joint Army/Navy NCC-IM residency program is a 3 year program that offers internal medicine and subspecialty training. We are a busy academic medical center with dedicated teaching faculty and a history of excellence in clinical education and research. Our patients include wounded warriors, military beneficiaries, veterans, foreign dignitaries, and our Nation's Leaders. We pioneered development of the GME patient-centered medical home and train residents to be leaders in military medicine and primary and specialty care.

On the outskirts of Washington DC, Walter Reed Bethesda is within easy reach of the National Zoo and Mall, many sporting venues/ restaurants, and numerous historic/military sites. Conveniently located on the DC Metro.
