  • Additionally, each Investigator must complete training immediately under the following circumstances:
    • If OUHSC FCOI policies change in a manner that affects Investigator requirements
    • An Investigator is new to OUHSC
    • An Investigator is found noncompliant with OUHSC’s FCOI policy or management plan
