Education and Training

The Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research (FCOIR) training course has transitioned from PEAK to CITI Program. Before Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai investigators and key personnel complete the Financial Interest in Research Disclosure Form, all investigators and members of the research staff must take the mandatory Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research education module via CITI Program.
