This 20-30 minute, self-guided module reviews the 12 core subject areas of RCR, presents a series of ethical dilemmas pertaining to RCR topics, and includes an assessment that must be completed with a minimum score of 80%. 

Once complete, contact AIRE director Dr. William Gannon (wgannon@unm.edu) to set up a time for a re-certification interview. That interview will simply consist of a discussion with the director about ethics or integrity issues that you may have encountered in the last four years, how those issues were handled (without too much detail), and recommendations for improvement of the research ethics pedagogy to improve the program.  Thank you so much for your participation!

The Lab is a virtual simulation from the U.S. Department of Health's Office of Research Activity. Learn about the long-term consequences of research misconduct by participating in this interactive film. The simulation can help you understand Responsible Conduct of Research topics such as avoiding research misconduct, mentorship responsibilities, handling of data, responsible authorship, and questionable research practices.
