Office of Research Policy & Training
The Office of Research Policy & Training (RPT) evaluates and manages centralized research policies and research training and professional development so that our employees meet regulatory, industry and institutional standards and requirements.

Training and professional development
Training current and future generations of scientific leaders is a key part of Northwell Health's commitment to advancing medicine through research. We are committed to providing the research community we support with high quality, continuous training and professional development. Employees can find more information on learning opportunities and resources, CITI Program, and other educational events on the RPT intranet webpage.
Public Research Education Program (PREP)
PREP is a series of CME-accredited classes designed to increase the quality of research, enhance and expand investigator capacity, and increase the efficiency of research. Classes are lecture-style courses or hands-on, interactive workshops, and are free. We invite all Northwell Health employees, students and volunteers, as well as research collaborators and community partners, to attend.
