OHSP Education & Training Framework
OHSP's Division of Research Education & Training, in collaboration with other key personnel in the University of Rochester's Human Subject Protection Program (UR-HRPP), has developed the training framework outlined below for the UR research community. These courses are intended to meet the needs of the entire UR research community-biomedical researchers as well as social-behavioral researchers; investigators as well as study coordinators and all roles in between. As such, courses will be open to all study team members and enrollment will not be restricted based on study team roles.
It is also important to note that the courses provided beyond CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) training are meant to provide a training framework for the UR community and, while OHSP may provide training recommendations, the courses are not required institutionally. Requirements that fall within this framework may however be set forth by department chairs, center directors, administrators or other senior UR leadership. Please see additional information provided in the guideline posted below.
