GRD 717
Principles of Scientific Integrity

3 credit hours
Contact Lisa Schwiebert, Ph.D. lschwieb@uab.edu 


The Principles of Scientific Ethics course (GRD 717) includes a blended approach of on-line training and in-person discussion on topics related to the responsible conduct of research (RCR) .  Specifically, the on-line training component includes completion of all RCR-related CITI Program modules; participants are required to successfully complete each of these modules, achieving a score of 80% or better.  Once completed, participants then attend an in-person discussion session that consists of an all-day Saturday workshop facilitated by training program directors, preceptors, and administrators. Three Saturday sessions are offered so that participants and facilitators have the opportunity to select a date that best fits their schedules.  These sessions debate case-studies in a team-based learning format as well as allow for additional RCR-related activities, such as panel discussions with faculty and administrators regarding ‘real-world’ RCR examples and role-playing RCR scenarios.
