Conflict of Interest Training Course
This document describes the conflict of interest training that is offered by the university.
Important Update from June 2018
A new Conflict of Interest (COI) training course is available in Canvas. Federal regulations and UW–Madison policy mandate that federally funded and human subjects researchers complete COI training every four years, and it has now been four years since UW–Madison’s most recent training cycle began in 2012. The COI Office will be sending emails to investigators who need to take this COI training course. Please contact the COI Office if you have any questions about this.
Online Conflict of Interest Training Access
Effective August 24, 2012, the University of Wisconsin–Madison Conflict of Interest Policy requires all investigators engaged in federally funded and/or human subjects research to receive training in financial conflict of interest. This conflict of interest training must be completed every four years. The training is offered through Canvas at Learn@UW. You will need to self-register for the training course.
Sub-recipient investigators on a UW–Madison PHS award must also take UW–Madison COI training if the sub-recipient has agreed to comply with UW–Madison COI policy. Sub-recipient investigators who must take UW–Madison training must obtain a UW–Madison NetID to access the training. To obtain your NetID, complete the NetID Request form. The COI Office will email you with a link and instructions for activating your NetID. The email will also include instructions for accessing the Outside Activities Report (OAR) system for required disclosure of outside financial interests and for accessing Learn@UW for COI training.
