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 PittPRO or OSIRIS. At a minimum, all users must complete courses in Human Subjects Protections and Responsible Conduct of Research. Depending on the nature of a study, other courses may be required. See Chapter 22 for additional information. The CITI program can be accessed through www.citi.pitt.edu.
