Unlock a New Career Path with the NIH Management Intern Program

Are you looking for new career opportunities? Are you committed to the NIH mission but ready for a career transition? For more than 50 years, the NIH Management Intern (MI) Program has offered key resources, training and hands-on experience to motivated NIH employees interested in pursuing a career in administration and management.

The MI Program offers outstanding NIH employees the opportunity to explore different administrative career fields, gain invaluable insight into NIH and to attain leadership positions.

“The Management Intern Program opened doors for me,” said Fettina Bryant, program alumna and administrative officer at the National Library of Medicine. “The program helped me see what NIH offered to people who aren’t scientists and it helped me understand that I could have the career that I wanted,” she said.

Graduates of the 2-year program have become some of NIH’s most respected administrative managers including executive officers, administrative officers, legislative analysts, budget officers, public affairs specialists, contracting officers and management analysts.

MIs come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from travel planners to scientists. Current GS-7 through GS-12 NIH employees are invited to apply. Benefits of participation include access to a senior-level mentor, an individual training budget, opportunities to participate in challenging projects and serve on committees, while interacting with NIH leaders.
