The Office of Clinical Research (OCR) is responsible for training research teams about Clinical Research Billing Compliance (RBC) , Epic research functionality , and OnCore. These three areas of training intersect and overlap.
Mandatory RBC Certification Course
- All UF personnel who work on any clinical research studies that require Epic upload must complete the online OCR820: Human Subjects Clinical Research Billing Risks certification course on a biennial (once every two years) basis.
- OCR820 is a prerequisite for several other classes in the OCR training series.
- Depending on your research role, you may need additional Epic, and/or Oncore courses (see table below).
