I. Tutorial and Examination on Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Guidlines

  • Purpose
    Federal guidelines require that all individuals involved in human subjects research must be knowledgeable about the ethical principles of research involving human subjects. The NYU Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) has designed a web-based tutorial and examination that covers that major principles of human subjects research and good clinical practice guidelines. A review of the ethical principles underlying these federal guidelines may be found at:

  • Process
    It is NYUCD policy that all full and part-time faculties take the OSP GCP tutorial and pass the exam. For new full and part-time faculty, the individual must take the tutorial and pass the exam within 30 days of official appointment to the NYUCD faculty. The tutorial and examination also applies to any student, resident, fellow, graduate student, staff, and agent of NYUCD involved in clinical research. All of these individuals must take the tutorial and pass the exam before the initiation of a clinical research investigation.
  • The Human Subject Tutorial is located at:

    Involvement in research by principal investigators, co-investigators, investigators, students, and research staff applies to the following conditions:

    • Data collection
    • Data analysis
    • Subject recruitment
    • Evaluation of subjects
    • Subject/patient treatment or interview
    • Evaluation of patients' charts
    • Evaluation of x-rays, study casts, and other patient-related information
    • Collection and evaluation of subjects' biological samples, including blood, urine, feces, sweat, skin, tears, saliva, oral mucosa, gingival crevicular fluid, gingival tissue, and teeth.

    A permanent record of the date of passing the tutorial will be kept with the NYUCD Office of Human Resources and the NYUCD Office of Quality Assurance. This confidential information will be combined with CPR certification, clinical licensure, DEA registration (if applicable) and other pertinent records to document the faculty/staff/student's research and clinical qualifications. It can be used prospectively to help recruit future research projects at the NYUCD.
