BIMS 7100: Research Ethics
Credits: 1
Beginning in 1989, the National Institutes of Health introduced a requirement that institutions provide a program of instruction in the responsible conduct of research (NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Volume 18, Number 45, 1989). This was later expanded to require that all fellows on NIH training grants should receive instruction in the responsible conduct of research. The requirement does not specify a particular format or curriculum. However, recommendations are made that several areas should be covered in the instruction: conflict of interest, responsible authorship, policies for handling misconduct, policies regarding the use of human and animal subjects, and data management. This course is designed to help student consider each of these areas and therein formulate an understanding of responsible conduct in research.
PATH 8060: Rotation in Diagnostic and Interventional Medicine
Credits: 4
A four-week rotation in several facets of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. These rotations will expose students to clinical problems and hands-on techniques such as tissue procurement, processing, and diagnosis. Students will attend Clinical Conferences in which cases of human diseases related to the students' areas of thesis research are discussed. This rotation will allow students to discuss their thesis research with faculty members to further refine their ideas. Students are encouraged to select one of these faculty members to serve on their Graduate Committee.
