Central to Washington University’s mission of fostering excellence in research, is a commitment to ensuring that individuals responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research receive education regarding financial conflicts of interest (FCOI) that is appropriate to help assure the ethical and objective conduct of research. FCOI education includes information regarding WUSTL’s policy on financial conflicts of interest, an individual’s responsibilities regarding disclosure of financial interests, and federal regulations governing financial conflicts of interest.
All individuals who are required to complete an External Professional Activities Disclosure must complete FCOI Education regarding the Research COI Policy, processes and applicable federal regulations every four years. FCOI Education will automatically be assigned and appear on your Me page in Learn@Work when it is due.
Learn more about FCOI Education on the Research COI website.
