National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Medical research agency that supports scientific studies
NIH is the only agency of its kind. We greatly impact the health of our country through unique and innovative medical research. We also play a significant role in helping Americans live longer and healthier: increasing life expectancy in the U.S. by more than 31 years since 1900.
Whether you are graduating with a bachelor's degree, entering the workforce for the first time, changing careers, or working on your doctoral degree, NIH offers a place for you to start and plenty of room to grow.
When you join us, you’re not just advancing your career — you’re driving the health of our country forward.
