Institutional Review Board

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)

For your research proposal to be approved, you first must complete the CITI Training.

Caution: Please note that there are several CITI courses, and only one will satisfy the IRB CITI requirement.  It is the Social & Behavioral Research-Basic/Refresher, Basic Course. This requirement applies to both students and faculty who are supervising student research.

The CITI Program is a subscription service providing research ethics education to all members of our on campus research community. The CITI course is a protected site. If you are new to the site, you must register and create your own username and password to gain access to the site.

Log on to CITI and follow these steps:

  1. Selecting this link will allow faculty and students to take any responsible research training course at no charge to your department.
  2. Once you have selected the link you will need to select new registration.
  3. Social & Behavioral Research - Basic/Refresher, Basic Course is the course required for submitting an IRB proposal.
  4. Please print an electronic version (pdf) of the Completion Report and submit with your proposal.
