RCR Rounds are open to the entire BWH research community and are sponsored by either the Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI) and/or the Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Office for Research Careers (ORC). Programs include both basic and clinical research topics; please see the specific lecture details to know if the course fits your research education needs.
Responsible conduct of research (RCR) training is required of students, trainees, and investigators with career development awards who are supported by National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds. The National Science Foundation (NSF) also requires RCR training of undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with any NSF support.
All fellows participating in the Partners RCR Training Program must attend the PHS Seminar, offered two to three times per year alternating between the BWH and MGH campus. Please contact the Partners Research Compliance Office for seminar dates, specific requirements, and how to claim credits. See RCR courses offered at MGH by the MGH Clinical Research Program, and the MGH Office for Research Career Development. News about RCR Training Events can be found here.
