Frequency of Taking the CITI Basic Course

According to VHRPP Policy VIII.A, the Vanderbilt HRPP requires all Investigators, Key Study Personnel, Students, and Faculty Advisors who are conducting human subjects research, to complete human subjects protections training using the online CITI course. It is mandatory that the CITI Basic Course, in either Biomedical or Social and Behavioral research be taken prior to any of the optional available courses (e.g., Good Clinical Practice, Responsible Conduct of Research, etc.) in order to meet the initial training requirement. In addition, all Investigators, Key Study Personnel, Students, and Faculty Advisors conducting human subjects research, must complete continuing education annually. Continuing education requirements may be met by attending an educational session approved by the VHRPP (e.g., IRB Essentials, Research Matters, News You Can Use, etc.), a national conference that addresses human subjects protections in research, completion of a CITI Refresher Course, or one of the available optional CITI courses (e.g., Good Clinical Practice, Responsible Conduct of Research, etc.). Furthermore, in keeping with the CITI Program curriculum, every four years personnel conducting human research – including those who have previously completed the Vanderbilt University Human Research Protection Training – must retake the CITI Basic Course to renew compliance with the VU IRB.
