Conflicts of Interest Training
Training is required once every four years for all those listed by the principal investigator and involved in the design, conduct, or reporting of BMC research or PHS-funded BU research. The training is hosted on Blackboard, and all those who take it must be enrolled in the Blackboard course first. An invitation to the Financial Interest Disclosure Training for investigators will be sent directly from the conflict of interest unit to the researcher after the disclosure form is received. If you already have a BU ID, and have registered for Blackboard at learn.bu.edu, you may be able to access the training without invitation. Search for “Financial Interest Disclosure Training” after navigating to learn.bu.edu.
A score of 80 is required to pass and you have an unlimited number of tries to achieve that score.
