Training is an integral part of the NICHD intramural program. A dedicated group of investigators and management staff maintain a variety of programs designed to enrich the learning experience of all trainees.
Please click the links below to find training opportunities at the NICHD within the Division of Intramural Research (DIR) and the Division of Intramural Population Health Research (DIPHR) and to learn about the support these Divisions provide to scientists, fellows, and students.
Training in the DIR
The DIR investigators conduct research projects to ensure the birth of healthy babies, to ensure the health of children as they develop into adulthood, and to optimize the health of women. Within approximately 78 research sections and units, the DIR program trains over 300 postbaccalaureate, predoctoral, clinical, and postdoctoral fellows and summer interns.
Training in the DIPHR
The DIPHR investigators design research initiatives that respond to critical data gaps to advance our understanding of factors that affect human health. The DIPHR training program incorporates awards and programs for postbaccalaureate, predoctoral, and postdoctoral fellows and for summer interns.
