Selecting Curriculum- Step 7

If you are unsure about which curriculum to select, please confer with your research advisor.

Most undergraduate students will only be required to complete the Undergraduate RCR Course specific to their area of research. If you change your research field you may be required to take another course.  Anyone involved in NIH funded research must complete the Conflict of Interest Course (if your research is funded through another source, you do not need to take this module).
