In collaboration with the UM Office of Research, the Ethics Programs coordinates instruction in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) at the University. UM’s schools and colleges administer their own RCR programs, of which Ethics Programs training is but one part.
RCR education is required for UM affiliates who are supported by NIH or NSF funds. It is also required by some UM colleges/schools and departments for all affiliates who may be involved in research, regardless of their funding source(s).
RCR education consists of online training via the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and/or various face-to-face class options.
See the list of scheduled classes for the next open live session.
Register for these classes through your school or college RCR coordinator.
