Welcome to campus

Visit Case Western Reserve University's uniquely urban campus, located in the heart of Cleveland's cultural hub, University Circle. Plan your trip:

CWRU trainees who are greater than 4 years beyond successful completion of the IBMS 500 course are required to complete and document 2 additional hours of RCR training each semester. To facilitate this requirement, the School of Medicine offers a new monthly RCR+4 series in which various departments in the school organize and host RCR topics over the course of the academic year. All sessions are open to those students needing additional RCR experiences. The format follows the IBMS500 model in which a short lecture is given on a topic area, followed by small group, mentor-guided discussion of case studies or scenarios to help students rationalize through various research ethics questions. Trainees are expected to report their attendance at these events as well as write a brief reflection summarizing the activity and their take away impressions of the RCR activity.

The schedule for the RCR+4 Series for the 2015-2016 academic year is below. Sessions are open to all. Please direct any questions related to a particular session to the contact listed as well as to inform them if you are planning to attend their session.
