Conflict of Interest (COI) training is now required for all PHS grants.
When you register for the COI course, there are multiple modules. The modules you are REQUIRED to take are:
- CITI Conflict of Interest Course – Introduction
- Financial Conflicts of Interest: Overview, Investigator Responsibilities, and COI Rules
- Institutional Responsibilities as They Affect Investigators
There is also an OPTIONAL module that you may take but it is not a requirement:
- Conflicts of Commitment, Conscience, and Institutional Conflicts of Interest
When you have satisfactorily completed all of the course requirements, you will see a link to print out a completion/grade report. This report is your ONLY proof of training. You will not receive a “certificate” from UTK or CITI. Keep a copy of this report for your records.
