Data Source:
1 Office of Intramural Research (OIR), 9/30/2021.
2 Human Resources data in NIH nVision, 9/28/2021.
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 most accurate number shown on the table is a combination of those in nVision (235) plus those uniquely on the Clinical Center Credentialing Office list of StCl, who are confirmed employees in other pay systems (Commissioned Corps, T5, T5/T38) by OHR (109), since the credentialed list also includes non-FTEs (e.g., volunteers, contractors). The numbers shown are only FTEs.
5 NIH nVision - Fellowship Payment System, 9/28/2021.
6 Office of Intramural Training and Education (OITE), OIR.
7 835 of these were summer interns through the Summer Internship Program (SIP), which for 2021 was only virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
