The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) gives you a front-row seat to the issues investigators can face and the best ways to handle them. During the last two years, more than 140 people have attended the course, which addresses everything from conflicts of interest to the ethical treatment of animals in research to intellectual property.
All those who receive support from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) and/or National Science Foundation (NSF) training grant are required to complete an RCR at the start of their training and again every four years. This requires eight hours of in-person training, so please note that the CITI requirement for IRB submission does not count.
The RCR course is held each summer and is free and open to everyone. Registration is required, and participants must attend six of the eight sessions to receive a certificate of completion. The Summer 2017 course is accepting registration through July 23, 2017. If you can’t wait until summer, RCR certificates are also available through the winter Essentials of Patient-Oriented Research (EPOR) course.
The Summer 2017 session will be held July – August 2017. You can get a taste for the lectures by viewing the below schedule.
