All investigators and key personnel who participate in the design, conduct, or reporting of human subjects research (including exempt research) must be appropriately trained in the protection of human subjects.
Baylor University uses the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) web-based courses to satisfy the requirement for training in human subject research. Initial and continuing education (every 4 years) are required. All key personnel must have current CITI training before any study-related submission (e.g., amendment, continuing review or new IRB application) is accepted and reviewed. Failure to complete CITI training or allowing CITI training to expire will result in a delay in review of the submission.
Eight core training modules are required. Additional training modules are available to address more specific aspects of human subject research that are not applicable to all projects. The IRB encourages investigators to complete any additional modules that are applicable to your research, and for instructors to use them as a resource in teaching and mentoring student investigators.
After you have obtained a CITI account, Use the following guides for completing your CITI training requirement.
