The School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGS&R) ensures University compliance with federal, state, local, and University regulations with regard to research. To facilitate compliance SGS&R provides the UIW community a variety of training options using a web-based training program. Separate courses are available for Human Subject Researchers (initial and refresher), Good Clinical Practice (GCP), Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPS), and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). The various courses and materials offer researchers the opportunity to complete training at their convenience. The modules can be accessed directly at www.citiprogram.org
The University of the Incarnate Word’s Human Subjects Institutional Review Board (IRB) would like to invite current and future researchers to attend a series of educational workshops over the course of the Fall Semester.
Workshop dates: TBA
Human Subject researchers must complete the initial human subjects’ course and pass the required testing modules with an overall score of 85% to receive a training certificate. UIW has built multiple courses based on the college / school of an investigator to reduce any confusion regarding which option a researcher must choose. The initial certification is good for three years, per UIW IRB policy. Upon expiration of the initial certification, refreshers courses are available, which upon completion are also good for a three year period. The refresher course may be repeated every three years thereafter.
For assistance with CITI training or if any questions arise regarding training expiration dates or additional requirements, please contact the Office of Research Development for assistance at (210) 805-3036 or email@example.com.
