Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)

All individuals requiring human subject research must complete the training process via the University's CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) training website.  

  • Initial training can be completed by completing either of the following: 
    • CITI Basic Course in human subjects research (estimated to take 4-6 hours)
    • CRTP Students: Both semesters of Dr. Macklin's Research Ethics course
  • The CITI Basic course offers a broad base of educational material for all individuals who are involved in the conduct of human subject research. The Einstein IRB requirements for completion of this tutorial have been structured to offer each researcher a program that has been tailored to address issues associated with their area of study.
