New Management Interns Join NIH

NIH recently welcomed seven new Presidential Management Interns (PMIs), three new NIH Management Interns (MIs) and two fellows from an NCI training program (see photo).

The Presidential and NIH Management Intern Programs are both celebrating anniversaries. The MI program is marking 40 successful years and has graduated more than 292 interns since its inception in 1957. The PMI program -- open only to graduate degree recipients -- is celebrating 20 years and has graduated 43 interns. Many of the interns have remained with NIH and have gone on to successful, high-level managerial positions.

Observes Tony Itteilag, NIH deputy director for management, "The PMI and other management training programs have proven themselves to be the most effective way for the federal government to fill positions in a whole variety of nonmedical, nonscientific specialties -- from budget and policy analysis to legislative and planning slots."


The 1996 interns are (front, from l) Matthew Burr, Karen Colbert, Myra Thomas. In middle row are (from l) Julie Jacob, Richard Julian, Katie Smeltz, Carolyn Hunt. At rear are (from l) Judy Lin, Diane Barber, Roberto Minutillo, Jennifer Gorman, Janet Goldberg.

Both programs use entry-level career development training designed for outstanding men and women interested in careers in public service. Both programs use rotational assignments to introduce interns to administrative career tracks, i.e., grant and contract management, general administration, human resources management, budget, legislation, and program/management analysis.

The MI program is administered by the administrative training committee. The opening date for this year's program is Feb. 10 and the program closes Mar. 10. This year's program will be limited to DHHS employees only. Application packages are now available and may be obtained from most NIH personnel offices or by calling the Division of Career Resources, 6-2403.
