Affordable Continuing Education at the National Institutes of Health.

The Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) at the NIH seeks to foster education and research in the biomedical sciences by providing instruction at the cutting edge of biological sciences and its evolving applications. Our goals also include responding to the educational and cultural needs of the NIH community and projecting FAES educational assets globally.

To suit the needs of working professionals, most classes are held in the evenings and are conveniently located in either FAES’s new Academic Center (Building 10 - NIH Clinical Center) or in other buildings on the NIH campuses in Bethesda and Rockville, MD.

The FAES Graduate School at NIH operates with the approval of the Maryland Higher Education Commission as a non-degree-granting independent postsecondary school. FAES courses do not currently lead to degrees.
