Students directly admitted into ITEHP are required to abide by Office of Biomedical Graduate Education’s Basic Medical Science RCR requirements, for a total of 18 hours.  Students who entered through any other program and have elected to complete the ITEHP certificate are required to meet the RCR requirements for PhD Students Not in Biomedical Sciences, for a total of 12 hours.

All RCR credits are monitored and tracked by the university registrar and recorded on the student’s transcript.  Students are required to submit written assessments before they receive credit. 

For a listing of upcoming RCR Forums, please visit their website.  These forums count towards the additional RCR contact hours beyond the core trainings needed to meet the graduation requirements, regardless of training path (biomedical vs. non-biomedical).
