Training & Education

TRAININGS

As a university community of scholars, it is important that our research and scholarship is conducted and shared with integrity and in compliance with ethics in research. The Office of Research promotes research integrity, compliance and quality research within the university community. This is achieved partly through education and training programs provided on research involving human subjects and animals.

RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF RESEARCH (RCR)

All students involved in research at Andrews University must complete a training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) available at EthicsCORE. This is required for Honors students and students receiving support through internal Faculty Research Grants, Undergraduate Research Scholar awards, Graduate Research Assistantships, and externally funded research. Federal requirements require Responsible Conduct of Research training for research funded by NSF, NIH and USDA.

Review the PHRP training resource (PDF), and then register to take your quizzes online at http://phrp.nihtraining.com/users/login.php. After reading the content in the PDF, quickly click through each screen of each section until you reach the end. This allows the program to track and record your progress through each section. After clicking through all of each section’s content, you will automatically be taken to the quiz for that section. There are four quizzes that must be taken online. The training will take an average of about two hours to complete and covers the basic ethical principles of respect for persons, beneficence, and justice that guide all research involving human subjects. More specifically, the material covers:

  • Codes and regulations
  • Respect for persons indicates “first, that individual should be treated as autonomous agents, and second, that persons with diminished autonomy are entitled to protection.”  Thus, respect for persons includes “the requirement to acknowledge autonomy and the requirement to protect those with diminished autonomy.”
  • Beneficence means to protect individuals from harm.  Specifically, beneficence is the obligation to “(1) do not harm and (2) maximize possible benefits and minimize possible harms.”
  • Justice means there should be “fairness in distribution” both of the risks and the benefits of the research.
Certificate of Completion

Once you have successfully completed the course, including the quizzes, a link will appear in the Main Menu of training site allowing access to your certificate of completion. To access your certificate, log in to the course and select the “Get Certificate” link form the Main Menu.
