Need RCR Credit? Research Integrity Series Starts Next Month

New RCR modules are available for RI faculty through March 2022.

Presented by the Brown Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies in the Division of Biology and Medicine

The Research Integrity Series for Faculty consists of core (required) and elective modules, with content and discussion topics aimed at more experienced scholars in the biomedical and clinical sciences.


Faculty must complete a minimum of 8 hours of interactive, *in-person core and elective content in order to receive RCR certification. Faculty who began training in this course in 2020 and have yet to complete their 8 hours may continue with this year's series. Faculty registered for this course may apply up to one hour of in-person external RCR training (for example, a departmental workshop, class, or seminar relating to a topic covered in this class). Attendees must provide OGPS with verification of attendance for tracking purposes. 

*Note, due to Covid-19, NIH has lifted the in-person format requirement through December 2021 (NOT-OD-21-152). We will therefore plan to hold the Fall sessions via Zoom. Location for Spring sessions is TBD.
