Required human subjects training
All key personnel and any researchers directly interacting with human subjects as part of a research study at IU must complete training requirements every three years.
You must complete one of the following courses through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) program:
- If you are mainly engaged in biomedical research, complete Biomedical Researcher, Stage 1.
- If you are mainly engaged in social or behavioral research, complete Social/Behavioral/Educational Researchers, Stage 1.
- If you are a VA researcher, complete the VA CITI course, and affiliate your CITI account with Indiana University. The VA CITI course fulfills the Indiana University researcher education requirement for VA researchers.
