We are pleased to introduce the new electronic Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) submission system which allows a direct interface between the IBC and the researchers, electronic approval information, real time access to forms and protocol information, and tracking of approval status. Please refer to the FAQs about eIBC and the transfer to eIBC.
Big Brain has moved to Compass
As of Monday, May 2, any courses you used to access in Big Brain will be available in Compass, OHSU's go-to learning management software.
Incomplete courses or courses in progress will not transfer to Compass, but your historical data will. In addition streamlining learning at OHSU, the move to Compass will save paper, too: New hires will no longer have to print their course certificates in order to get their ID badges-Parking will be able to look their info up in the system.
Badging requirement and Integrity Foundations
A completed Integrity Foundations certificate is required, in addition to the HIPAA and Respect at the University course certificates, in order to receive an OHSU badge. All employees, students, volunteers and others new to OHSU will be required to take Integrity Foundations, followed by the annual booster requirement.
The Patient Confidentiality Form is part of the Integrity Booster and Integrity Foundations. This electronic version reduces paperwork, lowers operational costs and makes the requirements for new employees and students more efficient.

A new version of the Integrity Booster 2017 has made its debut on February 1.
The Integrity Booster is an annual requirement of all OHSU Members. This year's Booster contains new information including policy changes and initiatives. It also provides you and the OHSU community with the appropriate resources to maintain our culture of ethics and integrity.
The course is updated annually and it helps OHSU meet a variety of federal and state regulations as well as internal policies and commitments.
Responsible Conduct of Research Training
In compliance with federal regulation and OHSU institutional policy, all investigators, research staff, and other relevant personnel (those reasonably involved in the design and/or conduct of human, animal, applied and/or basic science research) must complete CITI's Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) education.
