Responsible Conduct of Research Courses
Find a Session and Enroll!

Responsible conduct of research (RCR) training is required of students, trainees, and investigators with career development awards who are supported by NIH funds. In addition, the National Science Foundation (NSF) requires RCR training of undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with any NSF support. In order to fulfill the RCR training requirement MGB developed a curriculum that must be completed by all awardees. Once you have attended the 4-hour MGB RCR Seminar the awardees must obtain an additional 4 credits. MGH offers sessions that are RCR-credit eligible to complete the remaining 4 credits (1 credit = 1 hour).

Please note that this is a recording and does not offer RCR credit. Live courses that offer RCR credit can be found here Course Catalogue.

CRC/Clinical RA Study on Well-being

Are you a clinical research coordinator/assistant (CRC or clinical RA) working with human subjects to advance medical science? If so, you may be eligible for a short survey study on CRC well-being.

CRCs are integral team members in any medical research. We, a team that includes CRCs at Mass General Brigham, are conducting a short, longitudinal survey study designed to answer the question “Who is the CRC and what factors impact their well-being?” Our research study aims to investigate the risk and protective factors of burnout among CRCs to better understand and support CRCs and their well-being.

Study procedures include a short survey. You will have the option to provide your email address in order to receive the survey for follow-up data in the next five years.

Eligible MGB CRCs/clinical RAs are:

  1. Adults (18+)
  2. Working directly with human subjects
  3. Currently employed as a CRC/RA for at least 6 months
