The NCC-Internal Medicine Residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center brings together the best of Military Internal Medicine.

Located next to the National Institutes of Health and Uniformed Services University, the new Walter Reed Bethesda hospital anchors an integrated military healthcare system, with 50 ICU beds, 274 patient rooms, 27 ER beds, a 7-story outpatient building, and new gym/pool/lodging facilities.

The joint Army/Navy NCC-IM residency program 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 have active partnerships for training globally, including Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (Germany), NH Guam, Army/Navy research facilities (Kenya/ Peru/ Djibouti/ Honduras/ India), as well as with area hospitals including the DC VA, Washington Hospital Center, INOVA Fairfax, and Virginia Hospital Center. We send residents on humanitarian missions on the hospital ship USNS Comfort and clinical/research rotations at NIH.

Our innovative ambulatory block scheduling system deconflicts inpatient and outpatient responsibilities and guarantees protected weekends off at 5 week predictable intervals. 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.
