Schedule of Seminars

As postdoctoral fellows, the NIH requires classes dedicated to ethics in science. BUMC has a Responsible Conduct in Research Series, consisting of four, two- hour  classes:  two are offered in the fall semester and 2 are offered in the spring semester. Trainees are required to attend all 4 classes (in any order). Please refer to the following website for more information.

Trainees are also are required to attend a biostatistic class each year. Each fall semester, a two-session (one hour each session) course is taught by Mike LaValley, PhD, from the Biostatistics Department.  This is a dynamic class which is catered to the needs of the current trainees.   Fellows must attend both sessions each year while on the training grant.
