Training in human subjects research is a required part of conducting research studies with humans. As part of an initiative to increase standards in human subjects research knowledge, ALL researchers will be required to complete the CITI training program before running participants in studies, or to provide documentation of equivalent training.
Below is a link to the CITI online tutorial that is provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative. Instructions are also posted. The required course most researchers should complete is “Social & Behavioral Research - Basic/Refresher, Basic Course.” After all required modules have been completed you will be able to print out a Completion Report for your records.
IRB 101 workshops are also offered on campus periodically. These workshops DO NOT meet the requirement for human subjects training, but instead are designed to aid researchers in completing the IRB application accurately and thoroughly and to answer questions about the review process. These workshops will be scheduled at the beginning of each academic year in August and September. A schedule of these workshops will be available on this web page prior to the beginning of each fall semester.
