The practice of research administration is shaped by policies, legal agreements, and accountability to entities both within and outside of OHSU. This essentials curriculum is informed by expertise from RDA units as well as knowledgeable research partners in the OHSU research community. Through collaboration, we offer learning, tools, and resources that support sound practices in research administration.

Essentials classes are available individually, however, we recommend you participate in either or both of the Essentials curriculum tracks depending on your responsibility levels. Each of these builds upon the former Essentials of Grant Administration Certificate program and supports excellence in research through relevant, effective, and current practices in grant coordination consistent with broader practices and also applicable to OHSU's unique policies and guidelines.

Essentials of Grant Coordination


Essentials of Grant Management


You'll notice that classes unique to each track are in bold letters and that some courses are coming soon. Once these are launched, a certificate of completion will be applicable for each of these tracks.
