CITI Training

To assure that all human subjects research investigators understand their responsibility to protect the welfare of their research participants, the University of Hawaii requires that UH-affiliated researchers be “certified” in human subjects protection before conducting research, and all non-affiliated UH research investigators must be certified in order to conduct human subjects research on UH grounds.

Anyone involved in designing a clinical study, has contact with research subjects or their data, or is responsible for analyzing data and developing study results should be certified. This would include investigators, research coordinators and other research staff, study biostatisticians, and study data managers.

Certification can be obtained by completing the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) program at www.citiprogram.org, unless otherwise advised to complete the NIH training requirement (see memo).
