NIH is an especially welcoming place for International Fellows. There are fellows from over 100 different countries at NIH, so you are not likely to be isolated. NIH offers free English language classes for Visiting Fellows whose English needs improvement. In addition, there are many different organizations on campus that offer support to International Fellows. Some are for fellows from a specific country. For example, Fellows from China, France or India have their own web sites. There is a large Division of International Services that handles all the details related to visas for Visiting Fellows. If you would like more information about Visiting Fellows from your country, contact the NHLBI Office of Education.
