Human Subjects   

Training and Education
As of 10/1/2000, the NIH requires education on the protection of human participants for all investigators submitting NIH applications for grants or proposals for contracts or receiving new or non-competing awards for research involving human subjects. All "key personnel" in the proposed research must complete the educational requirement as well. Key personnel includes co-investigators, nurses, study coordinators, all those who conduct health or opinion surveys.
Currently, the University will consider completion of an NIH on-line training program sufficient for institutional sign-off on meeting the educational requirement. The program is available HERE. Once this program is completed, a certificate is provided. A copy of the certificate should be uploaded in IRBNet in your user profile under "Training & Credentials" at the bottom of the page.
** Training curriculum is in process of revision. **
