Federal regulations require all federally funded (NIH & NSF) trainees of specific programs to have at least eight hours of face-to-face Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training within one year. Once the training is complete, the training requirement is fulfilled for a period of four years. The Office of Research Compliance (ORC) and the College of Medicine have collaborated with the Graduate School to meet these federal requirements. A Scientific Communications (SC) course will be offered to all federally funded trainees in order to meet federal requirements. The Scientific Communications course is a one-year course with many sessions on various topics. A list of five sessions per semester have been identified and scheduled to meet the needs of the Responsible Conduct of Research training requirement. Each session will be one hour in length; therefore a total of eight sessions must be completed in order to comply with the federal regulations.
This notice applies to the following programs: D43, D71, F05, F30, F31, F32, F33, F34, F37, F38, K01, K02, K05, K07, K08, K12, K18, K22, K23, K24, K25, K26, K30, K99/R00, KL1, KL2, R25, R36, T15, T32, T34, T35, T36, T37, T90/R90, TL1, TU2, and U2R.
The Office of Research Compliance will track and maintain records of all sessions completed by UAMS federally funded trainees. All federally funded trainees from programs listed above, must attend eight of the 11 identified sessions within one year.
These will be live classes held in the BM II Rayford Auditorium from 2-3 p.m.
Please note that trainees who have completed at least eight hours of the Scientific Communications course within the past three years do not have to complete the training this year (if attendance can be verified). However, after a four-year time frame, the course must be repeated.
