Graduate Research Integrity Workshop

This workshop is designed primarily for research-stream graduate students in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine. The main objective is to expose you to research integrity issues that you may encounter during your studies and beyond as independent researchers. By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Be able to define research misconduct, why it occurs and identify examples.
  • Review issues of integrity surrounding authorship and best practices on how to prevent/resolve related disputes.
  • Review how images can be manipulated, how to recognize these distorted images and best practices in presenting images.
  • Be informed of where to find available resources about research integrity.

Organized as a hybrid offering, this workshop includes online materials on Quercus and a live component. Students will need to complete all the components by the deadlines specified in order to successfully complete this workshop.
