Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI)
All investigators who have federal funding and include human subjects in their research must complete this program prior to commencing their study. Other investigators performing human subjects research are asked to review this course, "Investigator 101" or complete the training on the National Cancer Institute website. Certification is not required at this time.
A score of 75% correct is required to receive credit for passing the course. If this score is not attained through the online course, please contact the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs for more information.
The program consists of 11 modules that vary in length. Investigators on the Reynolda Campus are asked to complete Modules 1-6. All modules 7-11 should be completed as applicable. For compliance with the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center requirements, please see their website. Investigators wishing to obtain certification for the Baptist Medical Center may also take the CRICC course. Consult Wake Forest University Health Sciences Office of Research website for course availability.

Investigators performing human subjects research who do not receive federal funding may review the CD-ROM "Investigator 101" or complete the training located on the NCI website - http://cme.nci.nih.gov/toc.asp. These options are available in lieu of reviewing the CITI modules and are only offered to investigators who do not need certification.
Please call 758-5888 with any questions.
