HRPP Education Outreach Initiative

The HRPPO sponsors a regularly scheduled educational outreach activity that will award one credit hour to attendees. This can be used towards meeting the Interim Training requirement. Please note that all research personnel must have a minimum of four cumulative hours of research ethics related continuing training which should be completed no sooner than one year, and no later than two years following completion of initial training. It is highly recommended that researchers take advantage of any educational opportunities or resources that will be announced in this website.
