May 12, 2021 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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

OITE will provide a virtual mandatory training for all trainees (IRTAs, CRTAs, and Visiting Fellows) regarding your rights and responsibilities as a trainee, especially around new policies at the NIH. The goal of this training is to provide you with information to ensure that you are safe while at the NIH, and ensure that you are aware of the policies and resources to set yourself up for both personal and career success. 

If you have successfully completed this training in the past, you do not need to attend again. If you are new to the NIH and have not completed this training, now is the time to do so.  This training is offered every other month.

Research Fellows and Clinical Fellows are encouraged, but not required, to attend.
Please register with your NIH email. Non-NIH email registrations will be deleted.
