Responsible Conduct of Research
Requirements for Coursework on Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR)
The requirement by NIH, for investigators to have “face to face” training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) can currently be met by means of: 1) enrolling and completing the entire 8 hour RCR course directed by Charles Mobbs or can be fulfilled by a combination of opportunities totaling 8 hours in which one can receive such instruction including:
1. Charles Mobbs’ course (1-2 select sessions (Each session counts as 2 hours)
2. CLR0016 (counts as 2 hours of face time)
3. CLR0017, 0018, and 0019 (participation in all 3 courses counts as 2 hours of face time)
4. CLR0700 (counts as 2hours of face time)
All of the CLR courses utilize case based discussions as does the Charles Mobbs’ course, strongly encouraged by NIH.
Although it currently does not satisfy the NIH requirements, we will include whether a student has or has not completed the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) course in:
Basic Courses in the Protection of Human Research Subjects.
o Biomedical Focus (Investigators/Research Staff)
o Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
Please refer to your program checklist to ensure that you have met the RCR requirement.
