Up-to-date research ethics training is a condition of IRB approval. OSU requires that this training be renewed every three years. This can be accomplished by completing the initial or refresher course offered by CITI. Please review the training requirements and ensure that you and all of the study team members for a given project have current training before you submit a new application, a project revision, or a continuing review application.

Note that if you will conduct FDA-regulated research or NIH-funded clinical trials, training in Good Clinical Practice is required by the FDA and NIH, even if you had previously completed the basic courses.

  • Basic courses are groups 1 and 2 in CITI
  • Good Clinical Practice (GCP) courses are groups 5 or 6 in CITI
