PHS FCOI Training Information
The Public Health Service (PHS) published a new Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) Regulation which takes effect no later than August 24, 2012. One requirement of the regulation is all investigators must complete FCOI training, before engaging in the research.
UF has established a PHS FCOI training class that can be accessed through myUFL > My Self Service > Training and Development > Request Training Enrollment, Course Number: DSR810.
Investigators should take the mandatory training as soon as possible. Once taken the training is valid for four years.
NIH also issued a NIH Guide that provide some good information and provides some comparisons of the 1995 FCOI regulation with the new 2011 rule.
