The Office of Education is an access point, advocate, and resource for intramural trainees and candidates. The office provides assistance in interpreting the many educational and training opportunities available at the NIDCR and the NIH. Staff also helps with the application process in several ways:
- Identifying research laboratories (see Division of Intramural Research) with projects matching the interests of the candidate.
- Arranging interviews with prospective preceptors.
- Assisting with relocating and living in the Washington, D.C. area and helping with the transition into the Division of Intramural Research.
In addition, the office develops educational curricula and training plans and assists fellows in a customized training program. Fellows seeking specialized sources of training are encouraged to contact office staff.
The office also can provide help with career development and job finding, as well as workplace conflict prevention and resolution.
