Research Programs

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) is home to the military's most comprehensive center for graduate medical education (GME) with 75 medical and allied health programs training nearly 700 healthcare providers in all three military services, and staffed by more than 1500 faculty. WRNMMC GME programs achieve prestigious national recognition, and are approved by many American specialty boards and by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

WRNNMC is part of the National Capital Consortium (NCC), the institutional sponsor for GME in the National Capital Area. In addition to training opportunities at other NCC organizations, namely Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Malcolm Grow Medical Clinics and Surgery Center, and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, there are many collaborative training opportunities at other great institutions nearby to include the National Institutes of Health, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, the Joint Pathology Center (formerly AFIP), Naval Medical Research Center, Johns Hopkins, Washington Hospital Center, and the Children's National Medical Center.

WRNMMC’s close partnerships with the Uniformed Services University (USU), National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control give us direct access to advanced research, treatments and technologies unmatched by other medical centers.

We conduct more than a third of all military medical research worldwide with more than 1, 000 active research studies at any given time. We also produce hundreds of academic presentations and papers annually, many of which have won national research competitions.

We hold Federal Laboratory status, operate a state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratory, and participate in national and international research collaborations.
