  • Relationship with Industry Module

    *Important Note*

    The Relationship with Industry Module requirement for UBC COI applications on RISe has been bypassed until September 30, 2020. During this time, you will be able to complete your COI application without completing the module.

    Use Firefox to complete this Module. There are incompatibility issues with Chrome in particular and we strongly recommend that you use Firefox to avoid complications while we work to resolve this technical issue.

    The Relationship with Industry module is a fun and interactive module that covers key issues in the relationships between the medical community and industry, and helps you discern what is relevant to include in your disclosure. 

    There are two versions of this course:

    1. For members of the Faculty of Medicine at UBC
    2. For public or UBC staff outside the Faculty of Medicine

    For members of the Faculty of Medicine at UBC: Click here to self-enroll yourself in the Relationship with Industry module on Canvas. The module is connected to your Conflict of Interest Declaration in the RISe system. You will need to re-take this training module every three years and the RISe system will send you a reminder at that time. See UBC Faculty of Medicine's policy on Relationship with Industry here. This module is required by the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine and upon completion provides qualified access to the University of British Columbia Researcher Information Services (UBC RISe).
