BBS-510 Ethics for Research Scientists

BBS510 Ethics Course – Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR)

  

Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR) is completely self-paced and web-based.  The course is a requirement for all pre- and postdoctoral fellows.

 Please go to:  http://www.citiprogram.org/

  

At the top center of the home page, click on the blue box labeled "RCR Course”.
There is a registration page along with several different versions of the course  depending on the discipline (e.g., biomedical sciences, physical  and engineering sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and humanities).  

Core Graduate Students need to take the "biomedical" course.

The course materials are organized as: 

  • An Introduction to each topic area.
  • Basic foundation text and quiz questions for each topic area.
  • Case studies and quiz questions for each topic area. The following content areas are covered in this course:
  • Introduction to the Responsible Conduct of Research
  • Research Misconduct
  • Data Acquisition and Management
  • Responsible Authorship
  • Peer Review
  • Mentoring
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Collaborative Research

 

There are 15 "modules" in the RCR course covering the above content areas.  Each module has a multiple-choice quiz associated with it.   Students must pass each module's quiz before they can move on to another module.  Students can take modules at their own pace, exit the system and go back later to take and complete other modules--   it does not need to be done in one sitting (in fact, it is highly recommended that students NOT attempt to do this). The web system tracks completion of each module, and documents completion of the entire course.  It also provides a printed certificate of completion.  

PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRINT OUT YOUR CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION AND GIVE A COPY TO LINDSAY OR DR. SAMSON.
