Education and Modules
To register and take the mandatory IRB training modules, go to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) website. The link for the CITI website is http://www.citiprogram.org/. Please note that the required training is the Basic Course in the Protection of Human Research Subjects. Investigators will choose to take this course as a Biomedical (Group 1) or Social/Behavioral (Group 2) investigator. (The courses on the Responsible Conduct of Research also available on the CITI site are NOT required for the UMCIRB.)
These training modules must be renewed every 3 years by completing the Refresher Course.
The UMCIRB office does not send out certificates of completion. All those completing the education modules should print out their Report of Completion after finishing the required modules.
- Read the directions on the University of Miami web site. There is a test at the end of each module that must be completed. If you have questions, please call the UMCIRB at 744-2914.
- You may print each module as you take them for future reference.
