Research Administration Training & Education

This is the site for Research Administration Training & Education (RATE) Program, Research Administration Information Network (RAIN), and a variety of training and education opportunities available within the OHSU research community.


Research Administration Training and Education (RATE) operates out of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research. We offer training opportunities for researchers, research administrators, and others working in support of the research mission. This centralized effort facilitates collaboration with a number of RDA units and draws upon the experiences of knowledgeable research department staff. This enables us to deliver relevant and well-supported educational programming to our professional community. Explore courses here 



Research Administration Information Network (RAIN) plays an essential role in the effort to keep our community informed and prepared. The monthly RAIN forum features news and updates from RDA units as well as guest speakers from groups that work closely with the research community. All are welcome to attend in person, watch the live streaming feed, or catch the recorded meeting at a later date through the RAIN Archives. Tune in here 


RATE Community

RATE courses are strengthened by participation in our online community. RATE community members engage in discussions, share tools and tips, and access course documents and resources. This is where OHSU research administrators look for help with challenges, share their knowledge, and find support amongst colleagues. Join us here
