The OITE Career Options Series within this blog is intended to give you a snapshot overview of different career paths. The goal of this blog series has been to help trainees explore a variety of different options by connecting you to relevant resources.

  1. Public Health
  2. Science Policy
  3. Technology Transfer
  4. Regulatory Affairs
  5. Bioinformatics
  6. Science Education & Outreach
  7. Industry Careers
  8. Biomedical Data Science
  9. Physician Assistant
  10. International Careers

Of course, we encourage you to follow up this online research by conducting informational interviews with individuals in each field. Search the NIH Alumni Database to find alums from the NIH doing similar work. Is there a field you would like us to highlight within this Career Options Series?
