A Teaching Hospital

It's remarkable when the delivery of world-class medicine and the adoption of leading-edge technologies are paired with attentive teaching. Everyone grows. Everyone benefits. Everyone is inspired and energized.
As a teaching hospital, Holy Cross Hospital partners with area universities to offer onsite graduate programs in nursing and health care management. We also offer a strong learning environment with many opportunities for onsite and online training.

In addition, we house the GATE Institute, the Washington, D.C., area's only center focused on minimally invasive surgery training for physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. We also house a modern Professional and Community Education Center, where experts present the latest health care innovations to clinicians and community members.

Holy Cross Hospital is the only non-federal member of the Association of American Medical Colleges' Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems in Montgomery and Prince George's counties. A sophisticated on-site Professional and Community Education Center is designed for clinicians and community members to acquire and share new knowledge.

The hospital hosts physician residency programs affiliated with George Washington University and Children's National Medical Center; partners with nearly a dozen nursing schools to provide clinical experiences for nursing students, including access to the hospital's state-of-the-art Nursing Simulation Laboratory; and trains students in other health care professions.

Holy Cross Hospital also operates its own School of Radiologic Technology and created the GATE Institute, a specialized training center for physicians who perform minimally invasive procedures.

Holy Cross Hospital offers to employees on-site and online academic programs through a partnership with Marymount University, including a bachelor of science in nursing for registered nurses, a master of science in nursing, a master of health care management and a master of business administration. Entry-level and support service employees can participate in the hospital's School at Work program to advance into higher-level positions and prepare for enrollment in continuing education.
