The article presents information on National Institutes of Health (NIH) courses. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto complied with the NIH requirement in that all applicants for NIH funds completed the NIH course. At CAMH the course requirements were publicized to the research community through written communications from the Vice President Research and the Chair of the Research Ethics Board. The on-line course requirement supplements other on-going educational programs in research ethics at CAMH. While members of research teams are hardly eager to add more tasks to their already busy lives, most internal staff have complied quickly. Some have even indicated that the courses have proved interesting and helpful.
