A new module entitled Introduction to RCR is now available. It is designed to be part of the RCR Basic course and was added to RCR Basic learner groups for no additional fee. This module introduces concepts and principles related to what has come to be known as the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), and provides an overview of the subject matter covered in CITI Program's RCR courses.
It is primarily intended for any learner who is going to complete the RCR Basic course. The new content provides the learner with a framework for understanding why RCR has become such an important subject area. Read more in the RCR Catalog.
How to Proceed
No action is needed by a subscribing organization to incorporate the new module into its RCR Basic curriculum. Please note that with this change implemented, the current RCR Introduction and Conclusion modules (1522 and 1043) have been removed from all gradebooks.
