All investigators and key research personnel must complete training in human subjects protection prior to initiating research activities. To fulfill this requirement, you can attend an in-person training session, or complete an online tutorial through CITI. Human subjects protection (HSP) training now requires a three (3) year refresher course available on CITI. 

Please Note: Certificates are no longer routinely issued for the in-person sessions. Participants names are entered into the CPHS educational database.
