CITI Program’s Conflicts of Interest (COI) courses
offer organizations a comprehensive educational resource to aid in financial conflicts of interest (FCOI) management. As noted in a recent SRA survey
, many organizations already benefit from these courses in managing and administering FCOI in research, and satisfying the federal mandate.
Why do Organizations Choose CITI Program's COI courses?
The COI courses are online and self-paced, and designed to help satisfy training requirements associated with the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) regulations on FCOI and with other topical areas in the realm of research ethics. Universities, hospitals, non-profit organizations, research institutes, and others can benefit from both the COI Basic and COI Refresher courses.
In addition to the core modules covering institutional responsibilities, investigator responsibilities, and COI rules, administrators may add supplemental modules on "Conflicts of Commitment and Conscience" as well as "Institutional Conflicts of Interest."
