Data Source:
1 Office of Intramural Research (OIR), 10/1/2017.
2 Human Resources data in NIH nVision, 9/25/2017.
3 nVision contains IPD information only for appointments under Title 42. Thus, nVision Staff Clinician and Staff Scientist numbers do not include those with appointments under Title 5, Title 38 or the PHS Commissioned Corps. For StSc there is a very small number in T5, mostly legacy (<50).
4 For Staff Clinicians, the more accurate number shown on the table is from the Clinical Center for credentialed StCl, which includes all appointment mechanisms (vs the nVision number of 191), with OIR verifications since the credentialed list also includes non-FTEs. The number shown are only FTEs.
5 NIH nVision - Fellowship Payment System, 9/25/2017.
6 Office of Intramural Training and Education (OITE), OIR.
