All students, faculty, and staff who plan to seek IRB approval for research projects that involve human subjects are required to complete the online CITI Course in the Protection of Human Research Subjects. Completing the course is a prerequisite for submitting an IRB application and research proposal.
All faculty who advise students who plan to conduct human subjects research are also required to complete the basic modules of the CITI Course. The CITI course summarizes and supplements information provided in the IRB Handbook for Research with Human Subjects.
Researchers may select modules from four groups: (1) doctoral research investigators, (2) master’s and undergraduate research investigators, (3) IRB members and faculty, and (4) staff and others. All required basic modules for the researcher’s group must be completed.
Researchers whose studies will include an Internet component, such as an online survey, questionnaire, focus group, or interview, are required to complete the Internet Research elective module. (See also Links to Additional Resources.)
Researchers whose studies will be conducted in a location other than the United States are required to complete the elective International Research module of the CITI Course. (See also Links to Additional Resources.)
A module addressing HIPAA is available through the CITI Course. Completing this module is required when HIPAA applies to a research study. (See also Links to Additional Resources.)
