PHS funded investigators whose certifications are expiring have the option of a refresher course for the CITI Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI).
Beginning in August 2016, many investigators will receive notification that their CITI FCOI training certification is set to expire and be offered an option to take the refresher course. The notices will be sent out at 90, 60, 30 and 7 days before the certification expires.
Please note that there is not an option to take the refresher course before receiving this notification. If the refresher course is not taken prior to expiration of the certification the investigator will be required to complete the full training instead of the refresher course.
Please direct questions regarding the FCOI Course, or the FCOI policy to UB’s Conflict of Interest Officer, Edward Zablocki (firstname.lastname@example.org).
