Conflicts of Interest and Commitment

The Conflicts of Interest and Commitment series contains a number of COI courses of interest to organizations.

About these Courses

The COI Basic course is designed to satisfy training requirements associated with the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) regulations on financial conflicts of interest. There is also a COI Refresher course that offers retraining on key concepts and rules relating to these regulations. These courses are intended for investigators who receive funding from a PHS agency, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or who are required by their organization to be familiar with the PHS financial conflicts of interest regulations. Organizations may want to customize these courses with institutional-specific details. Contact us to discuss organization-specific modules for the basic and refresher courses.

The COI in Healthcare course is a video-based course designed to provide an introduction to conflicts of interest specifically intended for healthcare professionals.

Language Availability: English

Suggested Audiences: Investigators Involved in PHS-Funded Research, Investigators Needing a Familiarity with PHS FCOI Regulations, Research Assistants
