Ethics Training


All graduate students are required to take at least 8 hours of ethics training in order to graduate.

Students in the Department of Medical Genetics can obtain these eight hours by the following methods:


  • Rehabilitation Research Centre Ethics Series – students will receive one hour of credit for each session that they attend to a maximum of seven credit hours.


  • Ethics Workshop in Medical Genetics (ESI Day) – 3 credit hours

This workshop is offered in the Winter term on an as needed basis depending  on the number of students requiring ethics training.



  • The Care and Use of Animals in Research – 1.5 credit hours

          (Health Sciences Laboratory Animal Services)


In order to have your credits recorded, it is the responsibility of each student to provide the Department Graduate Program Administrator with a copy of your proof of training (i.e. certificate, letter of completion, etc.).
