IRB training requirements

Log on to the CITI website to register, create a profile and complete the training. Be sure to provide as much contact information as possible in your user profile during the registration process in the event you need to verify training with CITI in the future. (You will be able to create your own user name and password.)

Failure to complete the training means the application will not be approved. Required CITI training modules are tracked to the type of research being conducted. There are two (2) tracks indicated below. Each track contains several modules:

  • Biomedical
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences

Each module may take from 10 to 30 minutes to complete, and most contain a quiz. The modules do not have to be completed all in one session. A minimum score of 90% is required to pass each module. CITI Program training is valid for three (3) years at Community Health Network.

Note: Human Subject Protection training completed through the CITI Program at other institutions within the last 3 years may meet this training requirement. Please contact the IRB Office at IRB@eCommunity.com for more information on how your previous institutional training may be credited.

Frequently asked questions about CITI

Community Health Network is proud to be a part of the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program housed at the University of Miami. CITI is a leading provider of research ethics education content and serves millions of learners at academic institutions, government agencies, and commercial organizations throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Established in 2000, CITI Program's mission is to provide educational content that promotes the quality of and public trust in the research enterprise.

CITI training is required of all investigators, including faculty, staff, residents and fellows, who are engaged in the planning, conduct, analysis, or oversight of research that includes the use of human subjects.

No. Community Health Network pays all subscription fees associated with the CITI Program. However, if the learner wishes to receive CME credit for the training, the learner is responsible for all fees relating to CME credits.

CITI certification at Community Health Network is valid for three (3) years. After the three (3) year period, you will be required to take a refresher course if you wish to continue conducting research at Community Health Network facilities.

When you have completed all of the course requirements, you will be able to download a Course Completion Report (CCR). The CCR is like a transcript and must currently be submitted with your IRB application materials when seeking IRB review of your project.

By the end of March, 2014 the IRB application system will automatically communicate with the CITI database and you will no longer be required to submit your CCR.
