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.

How do I find CITI?
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.
