Investigators are required to complete university financial conflict of interest training PRIOR to engaging in research and no less than once every 4 years thereafter. University financial conflict of interest training consists of an online COI course through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) program. After an investigator completes the COI Basic Course, the CITI program will notify the learner to complete the COI Refresher Course 30 days prior to COI training expiration.

ORC is responsible for delivering the financial conflicts of interest training and tracking investigator’s training completion. ORC has access to CITI course completion records.

A passing score of 80% or more is required for course completion.
