The goal of the program at Children's National is to expose medical students to academic pediatrics and the many educational opportunities our institution has to offer through a one-month rotation with a variety of experiences.
The CHAI Equity and Policy Elective is a structured, two-week elective that will expose participants to pertinent topics in pediatric health equity through didactic lectures and asynchronous readings. Students will also engage in discussions with physicians and field experts who are experienced in advocacy, equity and health policy.
Children’s National Hospital is the pediatric partner for the George Washington University Medical School (GWUMS) in Washington, D.C. We offer over 30 electives in a wide variety of disciplines including four acting internships (sub-internships).
