COVID-19: Essential Information

Research Ethics Training

To apply for IRB approval, you must complete research ethics training. Training is provided via the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). The Social & Behavioral Research modules take approximately 2.5 hours to complete and do not have to be done all at one time. Please see the INSTRUCTIONS to create an account, add the Social & Behavioral Research course, and complete training.

If you have already completed training through the National Institutes of Health course, we will accept any training taken within the last four years for faculty/staff and two years for students. NOTE: NIH has decided to discontinue offering this course. If you have already completed it, we will still accept training certificates up until their expiration, but once it expires, please complete the CITI course.
