Welcome!

Welcome to the University of Michigan! We are so pleased that you have joined the School of Public

Health (SPH). This handbook includes information regarding policies, procedures, resources to help you

succeed. For up‐to‐date information throughout the year, please refer to the SPH website at

http://www.sph.umich.edu/.

If you are enrolled through the Rackham Graduate School (i.e., MS, or PhD student), not all topics will

apply to you. You should also refer to the Rackham Bulletin, their student handbook, which is available

online at http://www.rackham.umich.edu/policies/.

Mission Statement

The University of Michigan School of Public Health seeks to create and disseminate knowledge with the

aim of preventing disease and promoting the health of populations worldwide. We are especially

concerned with health equity and thus have a special focus on disadvantaged populations who suffer

disproportionately from illness and disability. We serve as a diverse and inclusive crossroads of

knowledge and practice, with the goal of solving current and future public health problems.

Academic Policies and Procedures

Breadth, Integration and Capstone (BIC)

Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) students must

complete coursework related to each discipline in public health in fulfillment of the BIC requirements.

This means every student must complete one approved course in each SPH department.

The primary course listed below for each department is the course that will give the broadest overview

in that area of study. The secondary courses listed will also fulfill the departmental BIC requirement but

will be less broad and may have limited availability. If you have questions regarding the BIC curriculum,

please see the Student Administrative Coordinator in your department.

Breadth, Integration and Capstone (BIC) Integrative Course

In the Winter Term, 2013, we are offering a 4‐credit BIC course for first year students. The

course is designed to integrate material across three departments – Health Management &

Policy, Health Behavior & Health Education, and Environmental Health Sciences – to understand

and address important public health issues. At the outset, faculty members will introduce the

core disciplinary concepts from each of these departments. After the introductory lectures, the

class will use case studies to examine issues, such as obesity, lead poisoning, or global public

health, from multiple perspectives. Rather than attempting to provide in‐depth knowledge of

each field, the course will focus on why issues must be approached from a multidisciplinary

perspective, and how knowledge from each of the disciplines contributes to resolving difficult

public health challenges.

Algebra Exam

Consistent with our mission to create and disseminate knowledge with the aim of preventing

disease and promoting the health of populations worldwide, our curriculum requires core

competencies across the disciplines of public health. One of these core disciplines is

biostatistics, and we require each SPH student to take at least one biostatistics course.

Students admitted to the SPH come with a wide range of academic backgrounds. For students

who haven't taken a mathematics course in many years, biostatistics may prove

challenging. Skills in college‐level algebra are fundamental to success in introductory level

biostatistics courses. We want to be sure all students taking biostatistics have this foundation.

For these reasons, all students entering the School's MPH and MHSA degree programs, except

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

7


Biostatistics, will take a diagnostic algebra exam during SPH orientation. Students who score

below 80% will be enrolled in algebra tutoring sessions concurrently with their first level

biostatistics course in the fall semester.

The exam is mandatory and will be offered on August 27, 2012 from 9‐11am. Your name tag will

detail your room assignment. No calculators, notes or books are allowed during the exam.

Exemption Exams

Exemption from SPH biostatistics and/or epidemiology requirements may be attained by

successful completion of exemption examinations. The exams will be offered August 30, 2012

from 4–6pm and twice on August 31, 2012: 10–12pm and 12–2pm. The biostatistics exemption

exam will also be offered on Monday, August 27, 2012 from 9‐11am. All exams will be held in

room 1690 SPH I. You will need to bring your UMID and a calculator.

No pre‐registration for these exams is required. It is your responsibility to allow time on one of

these days to take the exams. The biostatistics exemption exam will only be administered

during the fall term. The epidemiology exam will be re‐administered before the start of winter

term.

For more information, visit http://www.sph.umich.edu/students/current/academics/core.html,

or call the Office of Academic Affairs at 734‐764‐5425.

Economics Placement Exam ‐ HMP students only (MPH/MHSA students)

HMP offers a two‐course sequence (HMP 660 and 663) that integrates intermediate

microeconomic theory and health economics. The economics placement exam allows students

to skip the microeconomics segments of HMP 660. A student exempting the microeconomics

segment can register for a 1‐credit independent study in the fall semester. During the

independent study, students will attend and be responsible for assignments in the health

economics segment of HMP 660.

The test will be offered August 30, 2012 from 4–6pm and twice on August 31, 2012: 10–12pm

and 12–2pm. All exams will be held in room 1690 SPH I. You will need to bring your UMID and a

calculator.

For more information, visit http://www.sph.umich.edu/students/current/academics/core.html,

or call the Office of Academic Affairs at 734‐764‐5425.

Dual Degrees

Public Health offers many dual degrees with other schools/departments across the University. For a list

of current dual degrees offered, visit http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/degreelist.html.

Student Initiated Dual Degrees

At the School of Public Health, it is possible for students to pursue dual graduate degrees even

when there is no formal dual degree program in place. Students interested in a Student Initiated

Dual Degree program should first discuss the potential for a dual degree with their SPH

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

8


department advisor and an advisor from the second degree program, and then meet with the

SPH Registrar to discuss the required number of courses and credits. Once the details have

been agreed upon, the student must petition their SPH department for permission to pursue the

Student Initiated Dual Degree.

Grading and Transcripts

Policy on Grading

Only courses with a grade of “C‐” or higher will contribute positively to credit‐hour requirements

and GPA. Courses with a grade of “D+” or lower will not contribute to credit‐hour requirements

and will negatively affect GPA. All courses shall be graded on a nine‐point scale. Undergraduate

courses will not count towards credits earned or GPA. Below is a table that shows our nine‐point

scale and how it can convert to a four‐point scale.

9.0 Scale 4.0 Scale

9 = A+ 4.0 = A+

8 = A 4.0 = A

7 = A‐ 3.7 = A‐

6 = B+ 3.3 = B+

5 = B 3.0 = B

4 = B‐ 2.7 = B‐

3 = C+ 2.3 = C+

2 = C 2.0 = C

1 = C‐ 1.7 = C‐

Grade Grievance Policy

1. We encourage any student who believes that a grade received in a course is unfair to set up an

appointment with the instructor to discuss how the grade was determined.

2. If step 1 does not resolve the grade issue, the student must contact the instructor in writing,

within two weeks of the start of the next term. For grades given for Fall term courses, the

student has two weeks into the beginning of the Winter term. For grades given for Winter term

courses, the student has two weeks into the beginning of the Spring or Spring/Summer term.

The instructor should respond in writing to the student within 2 weeks of receiving the student

complaint.

3. If the disagreement is not resolved in the steps above, the student must file a written appeal

with the Department Program/Curriculum Committee. The appeal must be received no later

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

9


than the first 6 weeks of the Fall/Winter term following the semester when the grade was given.

The student must explain the nature of the dispute and attach copies of all relevant graded

materials. The instructor will receive a copy of the letter and will have the opportunity to

respond to the Department Program/Curriculum Committee.

The Department Program/Curriculum Committee will consider the student appeal and the

instructor’s response. Each party has the option to appear before the committee and may do so

without the other(s) being present.

4. If the Department Program/Curriculum Committee concludes the original grade to be

reasonable, a statement will be drafted to the student rejecting the appeal.

5. If the Department Program/Curriculum Committee recommends the grade be changed, a

document will be drafted stating the reasons for and specifying the recommended new grade.

The Department Program/Curriculum Committee will then determine if the instructor is willing

to change the grade or if some other action is acceptable. If these actions fail a letter will be

placed in the department’s grievance file, and in the instructor’s and student’s files stating the

Department Program/Curriculum Committee’s findings. The student will also receive a copy of

the letter.

If the instructor is no longer at the University the Department Program/Curriculum Committee

will change the grade.

The student will be notified in writing of the final decision. There will be no further hearing on

this matter.

Incomplete Grades

1. An "Incomplete" (denoted on the transcript by the symbol I) may be given by an instructor only

if the work is unfinished for reasons acceptable to the instructor.

2. The unfinished work that resulted in an incomplete grade must be submitted within one year

(12 months) of the time when the grade was given. If an Incomplete is given in the Fall term, the

coursework must be submitted by the last day of the following Fall term. If an Incomplete is

given in the Winter term, the coursework must be submitted by the last day of the following

Winter term.

3. Based on University policy, the “I” is not removed when the course is completed but remains on

the transcript. For example, if a “B” grade is earned, the grade will appear on the transcript as

an “IB”.

4. An “I” grade will lapse to an “E”, if the unfinished work is not submitted by the required

deadline described in the previous paragraph. In such cases, no degree credit is earned and the

course is then computed as an “E” in the term and cumulative grade point averages.

*Exceptions to this policy require approval of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Requests

for exceptions must be made in writing by the student and signed by the faculty instructor.

More information and a printable order form can be found on the central Registrar’s website:

http://ro.umich.edu/knowledgebase.php?ansid=1235.

Readmission/Time to Complete Degree

A student is allowed five years from the start of an MPH or MHSA program to complete degree

requirements. If a student has been away from the school for one academic year or longer, they

will need to fill out the Readmission Application:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/forms/readmission_application.pdf.

This application should be submitted to the department to which the student was initially

admitted for review.

Internships

The primary purpose of the field experience is to help students learn how to apply theory and principles

to work situations and to develop and expand professional skills and competencies essential to these

tasks. Furthermore, it provides students an opportunity to explore areas of interest and accomplish

meaningful professional work in a supervised setting. The expectation is for students to enhance their

understanding of the issues and problems in day‐to‐day operations, recognize the relationship between

the academic curriculum and professional work, and develop professional and personal skills through

practice.

University of Michigan SPH students enrolled in the Master of Public Health Degree (MPH) in all five

departments, students enrolled in the Master of Health Services Administration Degree (MHSA) in the

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

13


department of Health Management and Policy, and students enrolled in in the Master of Health

Informatics (MHI) Joined Degree are required to complete a field experience, or internship, as a

condition of graduation.

It is primarily the students’ responsibility to find, arrange, and complete a satisfactory field experience

that fulfills program requirements. Each department has a systematic process of identifying and

approving potential internship sites each year. There are a number of resources available to SPH

students to help secure fieldwork experience including, faculty members, SPH Career Services, the Office

of Public Health Practice, Global Public Health internships and a list of internship sites of past students.

Departments maintain detailed records of internship preceptors (i.e., site supervisors) and sponsoring

organizations, and also reach out to alumni and other departmental contacts to secure new internship

opportunities each year. Finally, many organizations contact SPH, seeking students to apply to their

internship programs.

For more information on internships, please

see http://www.sph.umich.edu/careers/internships/index.html.

If you are an admitted NON‐DEGREE student through the School of Public Health, you must

attend the first class of the term and request permission to take the class from the instructor.

Permission will be granted if space in the class is available. After receiving permission from the

instructor, non‐degree students may register via Wolverine Access on the first day of classes.

For more information, see:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/students/prospective/apply/nondegree.html.

Problems Registering? There are a number of possibilities:

1. Review the course restrictions and prerequisites for the class and make sure that you have

completed the requirements

2. You may need an override. Contact the department offering the course.

3. You may have a hold on your account. Check your status via Wolverine Access.

4. You may not have a registration appointment. Please contact the central Registrar's Office if

you have not received an appointment.

5. You may need to apply for readmission:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/forms/readmission_application.pdf.

Please contact the SPH Registrar with any questions or concerns at 734‐764‐5425.

Policy Regarding Late Registration Fees

Any initial registration is considered late on or after the first day of the term. Exceptions apply to

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

14


non‐degree students (who are required to wait until the first day of the term to register) and

students who were admitted less than two weeks before the start of the term. In extraordinary

circumstances, the University of Michigan Office of the Central Registrar may waive late

enrollment fees. A request must be submitted in writing to the SPH Registrar’s Office.

For more information please visit the central Registrar’s website:

(http://ro.umich.edu/tuition/lateregistration.php).

Drop, Add and Modify Courses

Through the end of the third week of classes in a full term, students may add, drop or modify a

course via Wolverine Access. A student who wants to drop the only course for which they are

registered must follow the term withdrawal procedures posted on the central Registrar’s

website: http://umich‐regoff.custhelp.com/cgibin/umich_regoff.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1289.

After the third week in a full term, MPH & MHSA students must obtain the signatures of their

instructor, advisor and the School Registrar as approval to drop, add or modify a course. The

required document is a drop/add form, which can be obtained from the School Registrar in SPH.

Once the form has all three signatures, the student will need to take the form to the central

Registrar’s Office with picture ID or leave with the SPH Registrar. Any class dropped after the

third week will result in a grade of “W” for that course. Courses cannot be dropped or added

after the last day of classes. However, a student may petition to drop/add a course after the last

day of classes by filling out the SPH petition form:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/forms/petition.pdf.

Policy on Academic Probation

What is Academic Probation?

A student will be placed on academic probation for having a cumulative Grade Point Average (

GPA) below a “B” (5.00) or for having accumulated 9 credits of incomplete grades.

What happens next?

The UM‐SPH Registrar will notify a student, the student’s advisor, department student services

coordinator and department chair by e‐mail if one of the criteria above is met. If a student finds

him/herself on academic probation he/she will need to:

1. Contact their faculty advisor. If their advisor is not available, they will need to get in contact

with the Department Chair or designate of the Department Chair.

2. Discuss their situation and the steps needed to rectify this problem with their faculty

advisor, Department Chair or designate of the Department Chair.

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

15


3. Follow through on the information received from his/her contact above.

Upon the recommendation of his or her departmental chair, and with the consent of the

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, a student may be granted an opportunity to continue their

studies. A letter will be mailed and e‐mailed to the student regarding the decision of the

Department Chair and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

If a student is not allowed to continue their studies, they will be withdrawn from any classes in

which they are currently registered and will be discontinued from their academic program. A

notation is placed on the student’s transcript that states that they have been dismissed for

academic reasons.

For students with a current term GPA of below a “B” (5.0), but with a cumulative GPA above a

“B” (5.0):

A student, their advisor, department student services coordinator, and department chair will be

sent a warning e‐mail if the student’s current term GPA is below a “B” (5.0). Upon receipt of the

e‐mail, the student should contact their faculty advisor immediately to discuss the academic

situation.

Policy on Required Enrollment by Students Seeking an SPH Degree

Up to one‐half (1/2) of the minimum number of credit hours required for a degree program in

SPH may be transferred to a student’s record from inter‐university and intra‐university sources

combined. The student must, therefore, be admitted and enrolled in SPH while obtaining at

least 50 percent of the credits necessary for the SPH degree. Students enrolled in MS or PhD

degree programs who wish to transfer to an MPH or MHSA degree program are exempted from

this requirement.

Full‐Time Status

To be considered full‐time, a student must be enrolled for 9 or more credits. If a student is

receiving SPH funding, they are required to be enrolled for 12 or more credit hours.

Transferring Credit into SPH

See the Transfer Credit Request form:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/forms/transfer_credit.pdf.

You may not transfer courses that were used to complete degree requirements for another

degree. You may be asked to produce proof that the credits you are attempting to transfer were

not used for a previous degree.

Credits transferred from courses taken prior to enrollment in SPH must include no more than six

hours of graduate credit obtained from other accredited schools and universities. These grades

do not appear on the SPH academic record and are not computed in the student’s GPA.

The transfer of intra‐university credit appears on the SPH academic record and the associated

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

16


grades received for this credit also appear and are computed in the student’s cumulative GPA.

Intra‐university credit may be transferred only for approved graduate‐level courses if all of the

following conditions are met:

a. Submission of a transcript from the unit(s) in which the course was taken to the Office

of Academic Affairs at SPH.

b. Approval of the student’s SPH department or program chair.

Courses cannot be transferred for credit if:

a. They have already been applied toward another degree.

b. They were taken more than five (5) years prior to entering the present SPH program.

c. A grade below “B” was earned.

Change of Program

If a student is interested in changing programs within SPH they need to contact the department

to which they wish to transfer to inquire whether or not admission is possible. If it is possible, a

student will need to fill out the Change of Program‐Dual Degree Application form:

http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/forms/change_program_application.pdf.

This form should be submitted along with the student’s application to the department to which

they wish to transfer. The Admissions Committee will review the form and respond with an

admissions decision.

Current Student Suggestion Box

The Office of Academic Affairs is always interested in your ideas and feedback on how to improve the

experience of students, build our community, and contribute to public health in new ways. Use our

suggestion box to let us know if there is information you would like to see on our website or any other

ideas and feedback you would like to share with us.

The Current Student Suggestion Box can be found here:

Dean’s Suggestion Box

The School of Public Health has set up an anonymous “Suggestions for the Dean” e‐mail box, which can

be found at: https://www.sph.umich.edu/scr/contact/. When a suggestion is received, the sender is

listed as nobody@umich.edu (literally), so the Dean will never see the sender’s name. The advantage of

this is anonymity. The disadvantage is that the Dean cannot respond personally to the sender

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

Diversity

A strength of the SPH community is its commitment to attracting, training and engaging students,

faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds, cultures, values and perspectives. We seek to create an

environment that invites and values the contributions of everyone so that we can fulfill our public health

mission. To this end, we are committed to honest and respectful dialogue, treating everyone with

dignity and respect, and managing tensions and different viewpoints with maturity, sensitivity and as

growth opportunities. We view this approach to diversity as fundamental to achieving our educational,

research, practice and professional development goals because it provides opportunities for us to

expand our horizons, learn from each other and do our best work.

For more information, see the Diversity Matters website (http://www.sph.umich.edu/scr/diversity/) or,

contact Chanel DeGuzman, Director of Academic Diversity Initiatives, at 734‐764‐5425.

Please note that it is important to follow university rules in your communications related to your role at

U‐M. For example, e‐mail should not be used for political endorsements or unauthorized solicitations.

As SPH Associate Dean for Research Al Franzblau points out: e‐mail recruitment of human subjects has

some rules, including that the message must provide the Institutional Review Board contact information

and must include the IRB project number. Also, email recruitment messages are required to be

approved in advance by the IRB.

If you have questions about the allowable or appropriate uses of communications vehicles, please

contact the Director of Academic Affairs, Debby Mitchell: debmitch@umich.edu.

policies regarding sexual, racial, and other forms of harassment.

To respect the intended usage of resources; for example, you shall use only those

resources assigned to you ... for the purposes specified, .... You may not use University

resources assigned to you or others for profit‐making or fund‐raising activities unless

explicitly authorized to do so by the appropriate authority.

To respect the shared nature of resources; for example, you shall avoid activities that

unreasonably tax system resources or that, through frivolous use, go beyond the

intended use of the system.

To respect the intended usage of systems for electronic exchange ...; for example, you

shall not send forged electronic mail, mail that will intimidate or harass other users,

Emergency Financial Assistance

The Office of Academic Affairs in the School of Public Health administers short‐term emergency loans to

SPH students who find they are in need of financial assistance for an emergency that they had not

planned or budgeted for. The money available for these loans comes from the generous support of SPH

alumni, who remember what it was like to be a student with an unexpected financial emergency. These

are loans that must be repaid in a relatively short period of time, in most cases, three months. SPH

students must request consideration for a loan by submitting, in writing, the reason why an emergency

loan is needed and the expected time to repay the debt to the Director of Academic Affairs. Please

submit your request to sph.emergencyloan@umich.edu.

In addition, UM students can apply for emergency loans through Wolverine Access. These loans are

approved by the Office of Financial Aid.

Ethics

Statement of Values Underlying Public Health Practice

Created by the Committee to Review Ethics in the School of Public Health, May 2003.

As members of the public health community – students, faculty, and staff – we recognize the unique

responsibilities associated with this role. We commit ourselves to the high standards of professionalism

and ethical conduct required to achieve community health, and to ensuring that the basic resources and

conditions necessary for health are accessible to all members of the community.

We recognize that the effective promotion of the public’s health depends heavily on the public’s trust.

Truth, integrity, accountability, reciprocity and collaboration are essential to building and maintaining

this trust. Those skills, together with a commitment to excellence and reflective ethical decision making,

are core competencies for public health professionals. Because public health is committed to the

development and appropriate application of information to protect and promote health, honesty and

respect for scientific evidence is vital to our academic and professional work. As members of the public

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

23


health community, we will strive to act in ways that promote trust.

As public health professionals, we value cooperation, collaboration and respect for the contributions of

individual members of our professional communities and of the communities we serve. We pledge to

treat each other with respect, and to honor the dignity and value of each member of our community.

We will strive to fulfill our commitments to each other. We are encouraged and expected to cooperate

in assisting each other’s learning, except in those instances where student members of the community

are directed to work individually. We will recognize the contributions of others to our work in a manner

that is fair and respectful in the preparation of papers, examinations, books and other documents or

websites.

The development of ethical competencies is a life‐long process, and an integral component of

professional training and career development. We pledge to use the ideas or writings of others with

appropriate attribution. We pledge to share, and to use with respect, our community resources, such as

facilities, library materials, laboratory materials, computing centers, teaching and conference rooms.

Finally, we in the University of Michigan School Of Public Health pledge adherence to the American

Public Health Association’s Code of Ethics, and to the beliefs and values that underlie this code.

The link to Ethics training can be found on the right hand side of the Academic Policies and Procedures

page of the SPH web site: http://www.sph.umich.edu/academics/registrar.html. This training must be

completed and submitted to the SPH Registrar by September 4, 2012.

Health Insurance

Students should have health insurance to help cover products and services not covered by the health

service fee. For more information, see: http://www.uhs.umich.edu/msa. International students should

view the following website for information on health insurance:

http://internationalcenter.umich.edu/healthins/.

Health Services Fee

UM students pay a health service fee included in tuition each semester. For more information, visit

http://www.uhs.umich.edu/feestudents.

What does the fee provide? The health service fee covers most services at University Health Services for

currently enrolled students. The fee is not a form of health insurance and should not be confused with

the optional insurance protection for tuition and mandatory fees. This fee is not separable from a

student’s tuition, nor is it refundable because of any health insurance a student may already carry.

You can find more information at http://www.uhs.umich.edu/feestudents.

HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is an extensive piece of

legislation that requires the standardization of electronic patient health, administrative, and financial

data. Important to researchers, HIPAA created the Privacy Rule – a set of minimum standards for the use

and disclosure of “protected health information” (PHI). The Privacy Rule protects individuals by

Office of Academic Affairs 734‐764‐5425

24


safeguarding the privacy of any identifiable health information, yet many provisions ensure that the rule

does not impede research or the mission of public health. Understanding HIPAA Privacy Rule is

important in protecting the dignity of an individual’s health information as well as in reducing

unnecessary delays in designing and conducting research.

HIPAA training is required of all SPH students. You can complete the training at

http://www.med.umich.edu/u/compliance/area/privacy/training.htm. This training must be completed

and submitted to the SPH Registrar by September 4, 2012.

Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship (RCRS)

A federal mandate has charged individual and institutional grant recipients, like the University of

Michigan School of Public Health, with the responsibility to train students in RCRS practices. It is SPH

policy that all SPH students are required to complete RCRS Training. Students are responsible for making

certain that they complete RCRS Training within their first 2 semesters in residence and before they

initiate their field experience (MPH, MHSA, MHI) or first full summer of research (MS, PhD).

University of Michigan School of Public Health 2012 All‐School Symposium

Capacity Building for Global Health: Responding to Challenges

and Opportunities

Monday, October 8, 2012

Rackham Auditorium

This biennial symposium is a unique aspect of the School of Public Health curriculum. The day is

designed for exploration and dialogue, thinking broadly and intensely as a community about a public

health issue.

This immersion program will leave you with an enhanced understanding of the issues and a stronger

appreciation for the work of your colleages across departments as well as students and faculty working

in global health at the University of Michigan and public health professionals working in communities at

home and abroad. All School of Public Health classes are suspended for the day, enabling all students

and faculty to attend the symposium. This all‐day event is an important and required component of the

school’s BIC curriculum (Breadth, Integration, and Capstone).

This year’s symposium, “Capacity Building for Global Health: Responding to Challenges and

Opportunities,” will examine the transdiciplinary methods required to address complex development

challenges, explore the co‐equal, transparent partnerships that build and support sustainability in local

institutions, and consider evidence‐based solutions which are effective, affordable, and scalable.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Roger Glass, M.D., P.h.D, Director of the Fogarty International Center and

Associate Director for Global Health Research at the National Institute of Health (NIH). Prominent

speakers from many regions throughout the world, the U.S., and the state of Michigan will also be

featured, including:

Graduation Requirement: Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship

(RCRS) Training and Registration

Dear Students:

Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship (RCRS) is defined by NIH as “the practice of scientific

investigation [and academia] with integrity. It involves the awareness and application of established

professional norms and ethical principles in the performance of all activities related to scientific research

[and academia].” A federal mandate (policy NOT‐OD‐10‐019) has charged individual and institutional

grant recipients like the University of Michigan School of Public Health (SPH) with the responsibility to

train students and postdoctoral fellows in RCRS practices. It is SPH policy that all SPH students and

postdoctoral fellows are required to complete RCRS Training. Students and postdoctoral fellows are

responsible for making certain that they complete RCRS Training within their first 2 semesters in

residence and before they initiate their field experience (MPH, MHSA) or first full summer of research

(MS, PhD).

The overall scope, content, and format of RCRS Training are also determined by these federal agencies

(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice‐files/not‐od‐10‐019.html). RCRS Training will consist of 8, 1‐

hour sessions of face‐to‐face interaction with faculty in small groups of no more than 25 individuals,

covering the following 8 module topics:

1. Research and Academic Misconduct – Fraud, Fabrication, and Plagiarism

2. Intellectual Property – Data Storage and Ownership

3. Responsible Authorship and Publications – Peer Review

4. Human Subjects Research and IRBs

5. Animal Use and Care – Laboratory Safety and Responsibilities

6. Mentor/Mentee Relationships

7. Conflict of Interest – Personal, Professional, and Financial

8. Research and Scholarship in Society and in the Global Workplace

SPH will offer RCRS Training during the Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 Semesters. Although RCRS Training is

not being offered as a formal course for credit, the training is organized into a limited number of

sections per semester that will meet at specific days and times. It is important that students register for

sections that fit their schedule and as soon as possible because successful completion of RCRS Training

at SPH will require attendance and participation in all 8, 1‐hour sessions covering all 8 module topics.

There will be adequate space available for all students and postdocs to complete training over the

academic year. Sections will be divided equally across both terms so that half of the trainees will be

accommodated in Fall 2012 and the other half in Winter 2013. If you intend to complete your training in

the fall term, please make every effort to register early to reserve your seat.

Section registration for RCRS Training will open to students on August 13, 2012 through the “RCRS

Students” Ctools Site (https://ctools.umich.edu/portal). Instructions on how to register and other

information will also be available on the “RCRS Students” Ctools Site through the syllabus.
