- To assure the rights and well-being of human subjects participating in research are protected
- To educate researchers about how to improve study conduct
- To provide resources to the Research Community
The Office for Human Subject Protection (OHSP) at the University of Rochester (UR) requires all study team members to successfully complete human subjects training through an on-line program called the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) prior to conducting any human subject research. Training must also be renewed every 3 years to continue conducting human subject research.
Instructions for registering and completing the required training modules through CITI are provided below. During the registration process, please ensure your UR email is identified as the institutional email address. Doing so, facilitates access to the Research Subjects Review Board (RSRB) online review system (Click IRB) for UR faculty, staff and students.
Have you Completed CITI Training at Another Institution?
If you are new faculty or staff at the University of Rochester and completed CITI training through another institution you still need to complete the UR-required training in CITI, however modules you completed previously (within the 3 year expiration window) should transfer to your UR course. In order to ensure existing credit transfers, you must affiliate your existing CITI account with the UR. Instructions for doing so are providing in the instructions document linked above.
If you have any questions about registering or completing this training, please contact Kelly Unsworth at (585) 275-5244 or by email at email.
