“As part of my Master’s degree in clinical research, I took a course in the Responsible Conduct of Research (Epi 201) taught by Dr. Bernard Lo at UCSF. This course is designed to address the requirements of NIH for education of investigators about ethical issues in human subject research. It consists of 7 hours of lecture during which trainees learn through case discussions how to identify and resolve common ethical dilemmas that arise in clinical research, how research on human subjects is regulated by the federal government, and what constitutes research misconduct. In addition to this course, I will complete on-line training modules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act as it applies to research as well as the UCSF Committee on Human Research’s human subjects training. I will continue to update my training in research ethics annually.“
