  • Lectures & Discussions Eligible for RCR Credit

    ​​​​The Partners Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Program requires participating trainees, fellows, and career development awardees to attend four hospital-based lectures or discussion sessions within 12-months of attending the PHS-specific RCR introductory session.

    Trainees/fellows/career awardees are encouraged to check this site periodically to identify new course offerings. Registration is through the hospital offering the course not the Partners RCR program.

    All trainees/fellows/career awardees must provide documentation attesting to completion of the four courses within a 12-month period. An RCR Attestation Form is provided to meet this requirement.

    • BWH, MGH and McLean trainees/fellows/career awardees should submit this form electronically to the RCR

    Please send any questions about whether a course is RCR-eligible to the RCR mailbox at
