UVM has contracted with the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) to provide discipline-specific (Biomedical, Social & Behavioral Research, Physical Sciences, Humanities, Engineering and Administrators) online educational modules in the responsible conduct of research.
CITI's online course in Responsible Conduct of Research fulfills the training requirement for students and postdoctoral researchers involved in NSF proposals and may be used to fulfill other RCR requirements by other sponsors.
UVM recommends that all researchers and research staff complete this training to promote high standards of ethics and accountability in all research conducted at our institution.
Each of the discipline-specific Learner Group courses guides you through a series of modules (topics) some of which incorporate case studies and/or quizzes. In order to receive training credit you must pass all the required modules for a specific Learner Group course with a minimum combined score of 80%.
Each course requires several hours to complete the required modules. If you want to improve your score, you may repeat any quiz in which you didn't score 100% correct. Optional modules may also be elected for additional training and are listed underneath the required modules.
A record of participation will be maintained.
These training modules may be used for all levels of classroom instruction, lab meetings, seminars and whenever the topic of responsible conduct of research can be appropriately incorporated into University education and training opportunities
