At Children’s National, our team is ready to bring world-class care and education to communities around the world and support providers in a shared vision of helping children by:

  • Providing accessible care in a timely manner
  • Offering highly specialized health care expertise not commonly available in foreign countries
  • Serving as an educational health care resource for referring physicians abroad

Our team also welcomes medical professionals from around the world to Children’s National Hospital. Our honored guests frequently speak on their topics of expertise to our medical and research staff, observe procedures, tour the hospital, and participate in other learning activities.

For our international providers we offer the following services:

Visiting Physician Program

The Children’s National Visiting Physician Program provides unparalleled support in bridging the gap between the patient and local providers. Our senior physicians and department chiefs educate foreign providers to build local capacity, keep patients from needing to travel outside of their country, and create physician to physician relationships, facilitating the exchange of clinical knowledge.

Virtual Grand Rounds

Our virtual grand rounds offer continuing professional education opportunities for physicians, students, residents and other medical professionals through presentations on various issues in pediatric care, such as research reviews, case studies or recent advances in treating an illness.

We also offer the following professional development opportunities:

  • Physician-to-Physician Training
  • Nurse Training Programs
  • Clinical Observerships
  • Graduate and Post-Graduate Internships
