Doctoral students paid in whole or in part from covered projects funded by NSF or NIH must adhere to the in-person training requirement delineated within the GT RCR Academic Policy for Doctoral Students. This involves successfully completing either:
The in-person training must be completed within the first year of the appointment to the project unless the “in-house” RCR course required by their home academic unit is not offered during the first year of the student’s doctoral program. However, the training must be completed before the applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline.
Applicable doctoral students who began their graduate program prior to Fall 2011 should check with OSP if they need to discuss other options for satisfying the in-person training requirement.
