Working at NCCIH

NCCIH thinks about health in a whole person fashion, and we lead the way at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in supporting rigorous research for widely used approaches, including nondrug therapies and self-care practices, to determine their fundamental science, usefulness, and safety and their roles in improving health and health care. We also conduct research that focuses on the role of the brain in perceiving, modifying, and managing pain.

Why Us?

NCCIH is small but mighty. One of the benefits of working in a small Institute/Center (IC) is that it gives employees the opportunity to work with colleagues across all departments within the Center (e.g., extramural, intramural, budget, administration, grants management) and to enhance skill sets. NCCIH strives to encourage continual learning to promote career growth and to recognize excellence in work performance.
