Event description


What is your plan for meeting the NIH requirement for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training for K awardees? There is a one-course solution uniquely tailored to your needs:

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for K Awardees

Open to University of Michigan faculty and staff. Current K scholars and K applicants will be given registration priority.

Notice: Registration for each session closes 30 days prior to the session.

In Winter 2019, MICHR will once again offer the popular Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for K Awardees, a seminar that is designed to meet the requirements of the NIH K-23, or any federal or non-federal career development grant.

The 5-session (10 hour) seminar is mostly interactive, practice-based, and focused on addressing RCR issues (ethics, integrity, and regulatory matters) that have arisen in the course of your own funded research. It's relevant, hands-on, and includes mentoring from experienced faculty.

Important information about this seminar:

  • The NIH requires a minimum of 8 hours of face-to-face training. Link to requirements:

  • MICHR is offering 10 hours of face-to-face training in five, 2-hour sessions.

  • Scholars may attend sessions to fulfill some or all of the NIH training requirement.

  • Scholars may choose the sessions with topics most applicable to their own research.

  • MICHR will issue certificates after each 2-hour session.

  • It will be the responsibility of the scholar to manage their own training plan and their fulfillment of the requirements.
