It is the policy of the University of Pittsburgh IRB that ANY individual who interacts
with human subjects or has access to identifiable data must complete the CITI training
(at a minimum, Human Subjects Basic and Responsible Conduct of Research Courses)
by March 31, 2013. In addition, all individuals who require access to OSIRIS to complete
ancillary functions (mentors, scientific approvers, etc.) must also complete the CITI training
It is the Principal Investigator’s responsibility to ensure that all individuals who meet the
definition noted above have complied with this policy whether listed in OSIRIS or not.
Individuals who have not competed the required training should not be participating in research
activities until the training has been completed. If the study has an audit or a monitoring visit, evidence of training will be requested.
CITI training should be accessed through Pitt's CITI Training Portal at: http://www.citi.pitt.edu
