CITI Human Subjects Training
Marquette Training Requirements
***ATTENTION INVESTIGATORS*** Current MU CITI Training is required for all new submissions. Lack of appropriate training will delay the review/approval of any new submissions.
Certification of human subjects research training is required for all principal investigators (PI), student principal investigators, and faculty advisers. Additionally, anyone serving as a member of the research team engaged in any of the following activities should complete training as well:
- obtaining information about living individuals by intervening or interacting with them for research purposes;
- obtaining identifiable private information about living individuals for research purposes;
- obtaining the voluntary informed consent of individuals to be subjects in research; and
- studying, interpreting or analyzing identifiable private information or data for research purposes.
Marquette offers human subjects research training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). CITI provides web-based training on a variety of research topics whose user base include thousands of institutions and users.
Each learner group contains 10-12 required modules and requires the completion of a brief 3-4 question quiz. Each module may take 10-20 minutes to complete (typically 1.5-2 hours total), and most modules contain a quiz. The modules do not have to be completed all in one session. A minimum cumulative score of 80% is required to pass the training.
