The Partners RCR Program is required of all.

The Partners program consists of three parts:

  • PHS Seminar – offered two to three times per year alternating between the BWH and MGH campus.
  • On-line training through the CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) RCR Modules that can be accessed by any computer with an Internet connection. CITI instructions are available on the CITI RCR Modules page.
  • Participation in no less than four lecture/discussion offerings identified as eligible for RCR credit. Click here for Lectures/Discussions Groups Eligible for RCR Credit.

The PHS seminar and CITI requirements must be completed within 12-months of the NIH or NSF appointment date or, if a direct award, e.g., an F or K award, as of the award effective date. The lecture component must be completed within 12 months of attendance at the PHS seminar.

RCR Attestation:
Upon completion of the program, trainees are required to submit an Attestation Form to the RCR mailbox to notify the Partners Research Compliance Office they have fulfilled the NIH requirement.  Upon receipt of this form, Partners Research Compliance will send an email confirming completion of the Partners RCR Program. This email should be retained as documentation for the NIH if requested.

There are two Attestation Forms. The K-24 PI RCR Attestation Form for K-24 PIs who have met the RCR requirement by teaching a hospital-based lecture or discussion or serving as faculty for the Partners RCR Seminar.  All other trainees or fellows should use the general RCR Attestation Form.
