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 on the federal requirements and Lehigh University's institutional policies. Instructions for registering and completing fCOI training on the CITI site are available here. Once the CITI course is complete, scores and completion reports are sent directly to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP). ORSP maintains 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.
