CITI Collaborative IRB Training Initiative

Welcome to the Registration Site for the CITI Program in the Protection of Human Research Subjects

The CITI program site provides a comprehensive selection of educational modules that can be used to satisfy institutional instructional mandates in The Protection of Human Research Subjects.

The Modules include:
  • 17 basic modules focused on biomedical research
  • 11 basic modules focused on Social and Behavioral research
  • Continuing Education (CE) modules for biomedical researchers who have completed the basic modules

Links to modules in foreign languages, including Chinese, will be available in the coming months.  Please check back.



Institutions / Organizations use the CITI modules in several ways. They may:

  • Prescribe a curriculum from the available basic or CE modules
  • Permit researchers to design their own curriculum using modules that are relevant to their own research
  • Use the basic modules to supplement in-house instructional programs

Participating institutions have created specific instructions and requirements for their investigators. Links to these institutional instructions are provided on the "Welcome page" of the course site.  Be sure to read the instructions and requirements carefully when you go to the course site.

The CITI program site is a secure site and registration is required to obtain a username and password.
