NIH/CC/CCR Orientation Requirements

Welcome to the CCR!

All new hires to the CCR, both government and contractor, are required to participate in orientation. This orientation program has been developed and coordinated by the CCR Office of the Clinical Director to be compliant with NIH and Clinical Center (CC) requirements with added emphasis on clinical research. The focus of the research-specific program is to ensure that all new employees receive consistent information regarding the conduct of oncology trials according to U.S. Code of Federal Regulations and Good Clinical Practice Guidelines.

For Physicians, Research Nurses, PAs, NPs, and PCCs, I will review the orientation requirements specific to your role. Data Managers will meet with their supervisors for orientation requirements.

Orientation is divided into 2 main sections:

  1. General NIH and Clinical Center
  2. Center for Cancer Research

List of Acronyms: This list is helpful for those new to the NIH and/or clinical research.

If you have any questions at anytime, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,
