Compliance Education

Compliance Education

Today’s research world poses complex methodological, ethical, and regulatory challenges. Education and training in the responsible conduct of research are fundamental to the Vice President for Research’s commitment to promoting research integrity, protecting humans and animals in research, and maintaining trust in the research enterprise.

The VPR's Education offerings include a wide array of learning opportunities, such as audio learning shots for individuals, to group CME-sessions, to graduate and undergraduate courses for academic credit that integrate a broad range of methodological, ethical, and regulatory topics.

Courses for Academic Credit:

A graduate course in the Responsible Conduct of Research is offered for graduate students, trainees, and research teams. It can be taken for course credit, as well as CME/CEU, and course completion satisfies the NIH Mandate in the Responsible Conduct of Research. The class meets Spring Semester on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:00 pm in the Claude Moore Education Building Learning Studio. Spring 2020 topics/speakers coming soon!

An undergraduate course in the Responsible Conduct of Research is offered for undergraduate students. The course meets Spring Semester Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30-1:45 in the Multistory (Old) Hospital Room 1777.
