Mandatory FCOI Training

Brandeis University is pleased to offer a convenient, customized online training program through the University of Miami's Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program. Many institutions across the country use this tool for training investigators in a variety of research-related topics.

Each investigator must complete training on the FCOI Policy within a reasonable period of time prior to engaging in research funded by PHS, and at least every four years thereafter.

CITI Training Program

Please note: The module Conflicts of Interest in Research Involving Human Subjects within the Training in Human Subjects Research course does not satisfy this requirement. You must complete the Training in Financial Conflicts of Interest course to satisfy the PHS requirement. 

For instructions on how to register for the CITI Program, go to the CITI Program Support Center: How do I enroll in a CITI course for the first time?

Once you are registered, you will be asked to select your curriculum. You can ignore questions 1, 2, 4, and 5; however you must choose "Not at this time" for question 3 and "Yes" for question 6.

Clicking the "Submit" button will bring you to your "Brandeis University Courses" page, where you will see the course "Conflicts of Interest" listed. Click on the course title and begin the course by clicking on the first Module.
