Verification of Training Requirements

All investigators and key personnel involved in Human Subject Research (including Faculty Mentors) are required to complete specific research ethic courses using the CITI training program. Only those individuals who have completed the required training are permitted to conduct human subject research or to access OSIRIS (IRB on-line application). At a minimum, all users must complete courses in Human Subjects Protections and Responsible Conduct of Research. The CITI program can be accessed through www.citi.pitt.edu. Questions related to training requirements should be sent to irb@pitt.edu.
