The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) will undergo modifications in November that affect the Human Subjects Research (HSR) and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) courses.
If you are in the process of completing either of these courses, please do so before mid-November. Otherwise, you may have to complete more modules than normally required as noted below.
Human Subjects Research Modules
On 11/22/14, the module “Research with Protected Populations – Vulnerable Subjects: An Overview” will be automatically replaced by a new module titled “Populations in Research Requiring Additional Considerations and/or Protections“. If the entire HSR course is not completed before 11/22, users who completed “Research with Protected Populations“, will be required to complete “Populations in Research“.
Responsible Conduct of Research Course
On 11/25/14, the entire RCR course will be replaced with a new course. Users who have started or need to take the course before that date should complete and pass the entire course before 11/25. Otherwise, users will be unable to finish a partially completed course and will be required to complete the new RCR course.
If you have any questions, please contact OPRS for assistance.
