UR-HRPP Educational Forum
OHSP's Division of Research Education & Training hosts a seminar series titled 'University of Rochester Human Research Protection Program (UR-HRPP) Educational Forum'. Seminars are routinely held 12-1pm on the second Thursday of each month during the academic year, though based on availability of presenters, the date may fluctuate occasionally. Sessions are open to all faculty, staff and students (content is not necessarily limited to 'clinical research' only; seminars are often targeted at human subject research in general).
The overarching objectives of these sessions are to educate study team members on how to:
- Conduct human subject research that complies with federal regulations, institutional policy and good clinical practice standards;
- Implement practices that will ensure the protection of the rights, welfare and safety of human subjects.
All seminars are announced via the OHSP email distribution list. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit and Certificates of Attendance are typically available for those in attendance.
Materials from previously held sessions, including copies of presentation slides and video recordings of each presentation (as applicable) are available in Blackboard (see the directory of materials posted below). To access materials, faculty, staff and students must self-enroll in the 'UR-HRPP Educational Materials' course in Blackboard (instructions are posted below).
