AbstractDespite the growing need to teach principles of the responsible conduct of research to those training to be biomedical researchers, no descriptive, easily compared information about the nation's RCR programs exists. The authors reviewed materials describing U.S. training programs in RCR that had been collected by the Department of Health and Human Services in June-August 1996. The authors found that two thirds of the 45 institutions represented in the materials provided RCR training only to those trainees whom they were required to train, although among the rest of the institutions, a few required that all trainees receive such training. The training programs studied were quite diverse regarding who was responsible for the program, what kinds of instruction were given (lectures, seminars, small-group discussions, etc.), course content, and how discipline-specific the focus was, The authors review the obstacles to effective RCR training and discuss ways to foster such programs.
