Welcome to MERETI Network, a resource for the international medical ethics community.
The Middle East Research Ethics Training Initiative (MERETI) was established in 2005 and since then more then 60 individuals have received Certificate Training in Research Ethics. Trainees have come from Egypt, Sudan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. Certificate Training consists of an academic experience during the summer at the University of Maryland followed by online training and the performance of a project during the following ten months.
Trainees’ projects have included research studies with subsequent publications in peer-reviewed journals, establishment of curriculum in research ethics, and development of research ethics committees.
In 2011, the MERETI program launched a Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Science (MSc.) in clinical research with focus on research ethics. To know more about our programs visit Middle East Research Ethics Training Initiative.
