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 utilizing an on-line tutorial developed by the National Institutes of Health. Investigators are to complete the training, save the completion certificate as a PDF and e-mail the certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
