DIR training programs span academic, scientific, and personal development of intramural scientists, fellows, and students at all levels of training.

Training in Division of Intramural Population Health Research (DIPHR)

DIPHR designs research initiatives that respond to critical data gaps to advance the understanding of factors affecting human health. The DIPHR training program includes awards and programs for summer interns, as well as postbaccalaureate, predoctoral, and postdoctoral fellows.
