UCSF is committed to supporting the research efforts of the UCSF investigator community through various training efforts. We recommend that Investigators who are new to UCSF visit Resources for New Investigators for general institutional information.
Human Subjects Training
|Investigators who will work with human subjects must complete the CITI Online Human Subjects Protection Training before the CHR gives final approval. The CHR tracks this online training to document compliance with Federal training requirements.
|All UCSF faculty with effort on sponsored projects and other employees involved in the effort certification process must complete approved training on Effort Reporting. Re-certification through continuing education is required every three years.
Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Information and Training
|The CITI Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Basic Course is an overview of GCP. Some departments on campus require this course, but it is optional for the HRPP. Be sure to check with your departmental GCP training requirements. See the Good Clinical Practice Training page for more information.
Office of Postdoctoral Affairs
|The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs offers formal instruction and support to Postdoctoral Fellows in an effort to enhance the training experience at UCSF and promote successful careers in science. It is an information warehouse providing an avenue of communication among Postdoctoral Fellows, Faculty and Administrators.
Research Conflicts of Interest
|Research Conflicts of Interest training addresses the importance of ensuring financial interests do not affect, or appear to affect, the design, conduct of reporting of research or compromise the protection of human subjects.
|The US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office of Research Integrity (ORI) offers web-based Research Misconduct training and resources to help researchers understand the types of misconduct and how universities handle them.
