The hospital is located next to Howard University here in the nation’s capital. There are many exciting things going on at Howard and many opportunities as well. In addition to the new “Resident’s Quarters” wing of the hospital (complete with refurbished call rooms, wireless internet access, computer room, lounge with pool table and a brand new large-screen TV, multimedia conference room, etc.) we also have a newly renovated gym available for all residents!
We uphold all of the ACGME’s guidelines regarding the 80 hour limit per work week to ensure the best patient care and health of our own residents. On days off , our residents take advantage of the many exciting things to do here in the DC/Metro Area (Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland). In addition to being one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country, the D.C./Metro Area offers a wide array of attractions including historic Adams Morgan, Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, and the museums on the national mall. For those who want to get away for the weekend, Louray Caverns, Virginia Beach, National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD and Ocean City are within driving distance. We also have some of the best shopping and dining venues in the world!
Please browse through the website at your own leisure. I hope you will consider us highly and I look forward to meeting you on your interview!
