First-Year Ethics Retreat (GS 710)

2019 Dates: Friday August 23th to Saturday August 24th

Course Director: Gianna Hammer, PhD, Immunology
Course Co-Director: Jeremy Kay, PhD, Neurobiology
 
Incoming Ph.D. students in the biomedical programs at Duke University School of Medicine begin their research careers with a weekend retreat discussing the principles of responsible conduct in research. This course provides a venue not so much for teaching "the right answers," but more as a means to raise awareness of ethical issues through discussion.
 
The course is a requirement for graduation and confers 12 hours of Responsible Conduct in Research credit. Students who cannot take the course in their first year will be wait-listed for subsequent years. Slots are guaranteed only for first year graduate students in programs in the School of Medicine including interdisciplinary programs.
