Public Health Service Awards

Is your project funded through a PHS (Public Health Service) award?

The Public Health Service Policy, “Promoting Objectivity in Research”, requires that all Investigators on PHS awards (defined as “the project director or principal investigator and any other person, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research funded by the PHS, or proposed for such funding, which may include, for example, collaborators or consultants”) must complete training in COI before expending any funds on any such awards. UVa uses the CITI training for COI module to satisfy this requirement.

Refer to CITI COI training module to complete training.
