Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) is a web-based training product that was designed by, and is updated and maintained by a number of nationally known professionals and is a program of Biomedical Research Alliance of New York (BRANY). It is a comprehensive program offering up-to-date information on human subjects protection and Responsible Conduct of Research issues. Program content is regularly evaluated and improved. CITI is well-respected nationally, with many large research institutions relying on the program for basic training.
University of Oregon offers content in the following areas:
- Protection of Human Research Subjects - Required to meet the Institutional Review Board (IRB) education requirement.
- Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) - Required for some grants or funding opportunities. RCR training does not meet the IRB training requirement.
- Good Clinical Practices (GCP) - For research teams involved in clinical trials of drugs, biologics, and devices. GCP training does not meet the IRB training requirement.
NOTE: If you have a study under review in the Research Administration Portal (RAP) and the CITI information for you or someone working on your project does not look correct or is missing, please see our FAQ page. It may take several days for CITI training to populate into the RAP.
