About Research Training and Career Development: Overview

On This Page


NCCIH is committed to providing funding for high quality research training and career development opportunities. NCCIH's overall goals are to increase the number, quality, and diversity of researchers in complementary and integrative health.

We will provide awards to

  • Predoctoral and postdoctoral students who are interested in pursuing a career in complementary and integrative health research.
  • Complementary and integrative health practitioners, so they may gain the knowledge and experience to conduct rigorous research in their field.
  • Conventional medical researchers and practitioners, so they may increase their knowledge and experience in specific research areas.
  • Members of populations who are underrepresented in scientific research and are interested in careers in complementary and integrative health research.

Types of Awards

Program announcements, formal documents published in the NIH Guide, describe each type of training opportunity. Announcements include details such as eligibility requirements, deadlines for application (receipt dates), application instructions, and review criteria.

Specific program announcements are listed on the Training and Career Development Opportunities page.
