Program Description

The P.I. Program offers the Professionalism and Integrity (PI) Workshop, which is customized for each individual participant, enabling us to engage a wide variety of behaviors surrounding human subjects protection, animal care, and research integrity. The program involves three components:

  1. Pre-Workshop
  2. Phone interview with referring institutional official; online assessment of participants (approximately 2 hours). All assessment data are shared with participants for educational purposes.

  3. Workshop
  4. The workshop is held across 3-days with two instructors facilitating small group work with 4 – 8 participants.

    • Day 1: Participants explore core values of research, cognitive biases, and stress management strategies.
    • Day 2: Participants share why they were referred and identify effective professional problem-solving strategies.
    • Day 3: Participants examine their research environments and write professional development plans.

  5. Post-Workshop
  6. Faculty facilitate a series of 3 follow-up calls with participants aimed at coaching participants through their professional development plans.
