Registering to Attend Discussion Groups at UW

Each year before the BRI begins, we send a notice to the BRI listserv announcing the dates of the summer lectures and discussion groups (other lectures are advertised separately, later in academic year). The emails to the listserv and the website include the link to the BRI Registration site. Because each PI establishes the specific attendance requirements for trainees on his/her grant, we recommend discussing the information and requirements with your PI, Program Director or Department Administrator. Once you understand your requirements, log on the Registration site and fill out the form. This should take 10 minutes or less to fill out and submit.

You will register only once with your UW NetID, but you will be able to go back and change information that was incorrect or has changed. You will need to close out of the registration program and close your browser.

Some specifics you should be aware of when registering:

  • When asked about your status at the UW (Medicine, other UW school, or UW affiliate), you should have at least one, but no more than one, “yes” answer. If you do have multiple appointments, choose the affiliation that tracks your training grant appointment or primary appointment (the appointment for which you are participating in the BRI).
  • When asked for information about your PI, the answer should be your PI, Program Director or Department Administrator - the person requiring your attendance. This will be the person who needs your attendance information. Beginning in 2009, PIs, grant administrators, trainees, etc, will be able to sign in and track attendance history on the BRI website.
  • When asked for the budget number, this is the UW budget number for your grant or training program. The budget will not be charged, but is for tracking purposes only. If you do not have a budget number or will get a budget number later, you may enter zeros. You can always update your profile to add the number later.
  • When asked your position on the grant, your answer should be your position on the grant (trainee, fellow, post-doc) or, if not grant-funded, your position in the department (faculty, fellow, etc.).
