University of Vermont (UVM) employees involved in clinical research activities at Fletcher Allen Health Care (FAHC) and working on projects involving direct patient interaction, retrieving blood, tissue, or health record data review, it is mandatory to complete documentation and submit the credentialing documents to the Office of Clinical Trials Research (OCTR).
OCTR is responsible for the personnel files for UVM clinical research staff. This registration function assures that research staff will have the appropriate orientation, competency, and oversight before participating in research activity. Once OCTR enrollment is complete, the UVM staff member will be notified that a research badge has been issued at the FAHC Human Resources Department. This badge must be worn at all times when the researcher is working in a Fletcher Allen Health Center location.
To ensure we are diligent in maintaining and keeping our files current, the FAHC research badge expires annually on June 30.
