New RATE online learning: Brief, convenient, informative

Classroom training is still available but now there’s a more convenient way to launch into learning about select research administration topics from Research Administration Training and Education.

These modules enable new supervisors, investigators, researchers and research administrators to learn about the core components of each topic anytime with their OHSU network credentials. Those with more direct job responsibilities can follow links to further learning at the close of each module.
