Human Subjects Research (HSR) Education



Human Subjects Research (HSR) Education

The main purpose of the IRB is to ensure that all research involving human subjects is conducted in accordance with ethical principles and federal guidelines. Education of those involved in the research process is considered essential to achieving this purpose.

CITI is a provider of online, peer-reviewed research integrity education. IRB requires investigators and faculty/research advisors to fulfill the human subjects research education requirement using CITI. They must complete one of the Human Subjects Research (IRB) courses as appropriate to their research: biomedical, social behavioral, or education action research. Investigators and advisors will need to set up a new account or affiliate with St. Catherine University if they already have a CITI account.
