All PHS funded Investigators including sub-recipient Investigators, must complete fCOI training prior to engaging in any PHS funded research and at least every four (4) years thereafter. Lehigh University is uses the web-based CITI Program to provide training. Investigators are to complete the training, save the completion certificate as a PDF and e-mail the certificate to email@example.com. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) will maintain records of completion.
In the event it is determined that an Investigator has failed to comply with Lehigh’s FCOI requirements, additional training may be required.
Instructions for registering and completing fCOI training on the CITI site are available here.
