Educational Program for Those Involved with Human Subjects Research
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program is a leading provider of research ethics, compliance, and professional development education. NYMC has subscribed to the CITI Program for its human subjects research training requirements, as well as many other research-training topics. The CITI course is an online, self-paced, modular program. Learn more about the CITI Program at their website: www.CITIprogram.org.
All research personnel defined as anyone participating in any research activity involving human subjects, has contact with human subjects and/or access to research data, must complete the CITI courses. You will be required to complete either the Biomedical Research Personnel or Social & Behavioral Research Personnel CITI course and the CITI Conflict of Interest, which are available on-line at: www.CITIprogram.org.
As in most professions, continuing education is a means to update members on new information as well as to reinforce the basic foundation. As an added benefit and incentive, CITI affords the opportunity, for a fee, to obtain CME credits. If you do not choose to obtain CME credits, the courses are free.
