RFMH policy for RFMH/NYS DMH regarding training in human subject protections for all researchers, key personnel, IRB members, IRB staff and institutional officials involved in human subject research can be found by clicking this link.
The training requires those involved in such research to take a computer-based instruction program known as the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI). CITI is a well-respected and widely used web-based training program that was designed by and is updated and maintained by a number of nationally known IRB professionals. The Program is housed at the University of Miami. The CITI Program is currently in use at hundreds of institutions and organizations, including many academic medical centers in New York. The CITI Program is designed around topic-specific modules, each followed by a short quiz. You will be able to complete the training requirement at your own pace using work or home computers.
