All students in research-oriented graduate programs, especially students who will be writing theses and/or dissertations and authoring and co-authoring papers in their fields, are urged to complete some type of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training. Discussion of the important issues raised by this training among faculty and students should be an important element of professional development in all of our graduate programs. Completion of RCR Training is mandatory for all undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers supported on a full-time or part-time basis on any National Science Foundation award. It is also required for many research grants funded by the National Institutes of Health. More details about the different requirements and types of training available can be found at the GW RCR website.
