Training

KUMC partners with the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative at the University of Miami (CITI) to provide Human Research Protection training and other types of training to our research community. Initial training is approved for three years. If you have taken CITI training through another institution more recently, send a completion report to IRBhelp@kumc.edu.

Important to note: completion of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) can NOT be substituted for the Human Subjects Research requirement. 

If your last CITI Human Subjects course was completed more than three years ago, you will need to complete a Refresher Course in CITI. You will receive an automated reminder about 90 days before your training expires.  

Downloadable Training Information

The requirement to maintain current training (within the past three years) also applies to collaborators from other institutions who are working on KUMC projects. Collaborators may demonstrate human subjects training from their home institution, CITI, or NIH by emailing their completion report to IRBhelp@kumc.edu. Alternatively, collaborators may obtain a KUMC affiliate account to complete the CITI course. To obtain an affiliate account, please contact the Principal Investigator (PI) of your project. The Account Requestor list by KUMC Department will help you and the PI identify your contact person.
If you have completed human subjects training through KUMC Chalk or CITI through KUMC sign on, log into eCompliance and click on your name in the upper right-hand corner. On your Properties tab, select the view "My Profile." Refer to "3. Training data" where you will find the title of the course and the date on which you passed it.

If you completed your human subjects training through CITI prior to your KUMC position, log into CITI through your previous affiliation and go to My Reports page. Click the "View" link under Completion Report. You may also view your expirations and scores from this page. If you prefer, you may be able to transfer your modules for credit to KUMC on the CITI website or request assistance from CITI staff.
All KUMC researchers should complete either the Biomedical Basic Course or the Social-Behavioral Basic Course, depending on the type of research in which you typically engage. Advanced courses may be required if your research involves vulnerable populations. Investigators who conduct biomedical research (research related to physical health) must complete the Biomedical Course. For investigators who previously completed Social-Behavioral training and are now involved in biomedical research, an additional course "FDA Research for Social-Behavioral Investigators" will satisfy this requirement.
Completing either of the CITI Basic Courses could take up to 3 hours. You can complete the courses in stages if necessary.

How do I find CITI?

CITI program log in update

While it is important to complete your CITI training for Human Research Protections, Conflict of Interest, or Good Clinical Practice in a timely manner, we ask that you wait until you have access to eCompliance before you log into CITI. Once you are able to log into eCompliance, you can log into CITI by using the "Log in via SSO" button (single sign on) with your KUMC user name and password. New CITI users will have a couple of extra quick steps with CITI so that an account can be created for you.  

If you have any questions or comments regarding the Human Subjects Protection training in CITI, please contact IRBhelp@kumc.edu or call 913-588-1240.

Additional Training in CITI

The CITI system is also used for training in Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). Please note these requirements for GCP and RCR are separate from the requirements for training in human subjects protection.  Additional information can be found at myKUMC or by contacting Mary Hindle at 913-588-1242.
