National Capital Consortium Pediatrics
A Tri-Service Pediatric Residency Program
The National Capital Consortium Pediatric Residency, located at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, is the largest and only tri-service military pediatric training program. The NCC Pediatrics Residency traces its heritage to the pediatric training programs founded in 1949 at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center by Colonel Ogden Bruton, MD 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 the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. 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 -- in tertiary care hospitals, isolated duty-stations, and the austere conditions of humanitarian and battlefield crises.
