Financial Conflict of Interest Training

Effective June 22, 2020, FCOI training is only offered in Canvas and the Financial Disclosure Form is an eForm with sections for reporting Significant Financial Interests, Foreign Government Talent Recruitment Programs, and Other Support. Over the next year, as existing Financial Disclosure Forms expire, you will be asked to re-take the FCOI training so that you will understand these new terms and be able to correctly complete the new form.


Beginning July 1, 2020, all investigators working on federally-funded research or submitting a proposal for such funding, must complete training in Financial Conflict of Interest at least every four years and have a Disclosure Form on file
