St. Joseph Health utilizes an online Human Subjects Protection Training
program called the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)
Program. All St. Joseph Health Investigators, Clinical Research Nurses
and Coordinators, Research Administrators, Managers and Pharmacists, IRB
Members and Research Data Support staff working on research projects involving
human subjects are required to complete Protection of Human Subjects.
Certification is good for two years and users must re-certify by taking
the Refresher Course every two years thereafter.
The online web-based CITI Program allows researchers to complete the training
in multiple log-in sessions and at a time that is convenient for them.
The CITI Program can be accessed online at
