The UCLA CTSI has developed a system to centralize, document, and enhance continuing education of research teams in Responsible Conduct of Research, Ethics, Mentoring, Federal Regulations and ICH Guidelines, Data and Safety issues, HIPAA compliance and GCP, by providing efficient comprehensive services. The effort is led by Dr. Stewart Laidlaw. The OIS will provide continuing education opportunities to all research team members, including staff and community researchers, who are not undertaking formal degree-level training. We emphasize core competencies in this effort. The Continuing Education Committee, led by Dr. Laidlaw, is actively developing curricular elements for more thorough training in the ethical and regulatory aspects of human subject research that are compatible with anticipated NIH guidelines requiring face-to-face and online educational programs as well as other ongoing changes in research standards. Some current activities sponsored by the Continuing Education Committee include:
The Curriculum Tree provides students, teaching assistants, and instructors with an easy and uniform access to course material and to online instruction tools.
