The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) is dedicated to promoting the public’s trust in the research enterprise by providing high quality, peer-reviewed, web-based educational courses in research, ethics, regulatory oversight, responsible conduct of research, research administration, and other topics pertinent to the interests of member organizations and individual learners.
These materials are designed and regularly updated to:
- Enhance the knowledge and professionalism of investigators, staff, and students conducting research in the United States and internationally
- Educate members, administrators, and leadership of ethics committees that review and oversee research
- Promote ethical research at organizations through the education of research administrators and organizational leadership
CITI Program’s content now includes nearly two dozen subject areas (such as Animal Care and Use, Biosafety and Biosecurity, Clinical Research Coordinator, Conflicts of Interest, Disaster Planning, Export Control, Good Clinical Practice, Information Privacy and Security, and Responsible Conduct of Research). These course materials reach more than a million learners annually at thousands of organizations.
