2014 Lecture Schedule
will be announced and posted spring or early summer 2014



Note:  This RCR training meets the NIH educational requirement for research trainees This is NOT the RCR training site for NSF-funded undergrad/post-doc students. For more information on the NSF training, please visit their website NSF-FUNDED RCR training information


Registration for lectures and discussion groups will require a UW NetID. Please have your ID, your PI's ID or email and grant information ready to register on-line. Once you register, you may login again and update or correct the information. You may also change your discussion group choices up to one week prior to the scheduled group. It is still important that you attend any group for which you register, so please be considerate of other participants and our volunteer group leaders. Please review the FAQ page if you have any concerns about registration.

**Lecture and Discussion Group options have been posted. You may register at anytime and log back in to select or change a group.

For those who cannot attend them, lectures are videotaped. Please note that PHS does not require that attendance be tracked at the institutional level. Thus, training grants have the option to track training not recorded in our report.

To view videos, please go to the "Resources" page. The link is at the top of this page.

Videos of last year's lectures are available on this website via the "resources" tab above.  Videotapes from lectures prior to 2008 are only available at the offices of Bioethics & Humanities and may be viewed by making an appointment. For access to video tapes of lectures prior to 2008, please contact uwbri@u.washington.edu or call (206) 221-6548.

Trainees are required to participate in a series of seminars and discussion sessions on the ethics of biomedical research and are therefore given priority registration. Other interested UW affiliated individuals are welcome to register for discussion groups on a space-available basis; all individuals can begin registering as soon as registration opens, although SOM trainees will be assigned to their preferred discussion groups first. Meeting locations for discussion groups are listed in the registration program. Readings and reminders will be provided one week prior to the scheduled discussion group via email to registered participants only. Please contact Margaret Mitchell at 206.221.6548 or uwbri@u.washington.edu if you have questions.

Attendance "credit" will only be awarded for attending discussion groups for which you have pre-registered and have received confirmation of enrollment.  Click here to view the discussion group dates associated with each lecture topic and learn how to register online.
