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.
Please send any questions about whether a course is RCR-eligible to the RCR mailbox at PHSRCR@partners.org
Registration for these lectures is required and must be done through HealthStream. Please follow the steps below to register. Each lecture is worth one RCR credit.
