NCCIH encourages applications for administrative supplements to NCCIH-supported awards (see relevant Activity Codes above) to support complementary health practitioners in an intensive, supervised research experience that will lead to a better understanding of, and practical experience in, complementary
and integrative health research.
For this FOA, complementary health practitioners include (but are not limited to):
licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, and music therapists; chiropractic doctors; and naturopathic or osteopathic physicians.
Funding is available for 1 year, with an option to renew for a second year, to conduct basic, translational, or clinical research associated with the parent grant.
This initiative is focused on providing a research experience for complementary health practitioners and is not intended to support clinical residency training or other clinical practitioner training.
