BALTIMORE: Ethics in Research Training for Postdocs

Course: Ethics, Responsible Conduct of Research

Mar 04, 2019 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Speaker(s): Sharon Milgram, PhD, Director, OITE
This event is recommended for: Postdocs/Fellows.

Research Ethics is at the foundation of everything we do in the scientific endeavor, and training in Responsible Conduct of Research is an essential component of your development as a scientist as you train here at the NIH. OITE is offering this course specifically for Postdocs to ensure that you have the foundation to both conduct rigorous and ethical research and to train others to do the same.

This course will help fulfill Ethics Training requirements for those of you applying for K awards or other fellowships, and ensure that you are receiving guidance in line with what is expected in the extramural world. The course will also cover teaching and demonstrating responsible research to mentees as you move into roles of increased mentorship.

This course will use lectures, group discussions, and case studies to explore the principles and practice of research ethics. The full-day course is split into a morning and afternoon session (attendance at both is required for course credit.) Further information can be found at:

Certificates will be awarded upon successful completion. Please note that this training is required by NIDA and NIA.
