CITI Training Site In order to ensure the safety, confidentiality, and welfare of human subjects involved in research, the University requires and encourages specific and optional training and continued education programs.

Human Subjects Protection - CITI

All MUSC investigators and key personnel involved in the design, conduct, or reporting of human subjects research (including exempt research) are required to take and pass, the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) web-based course on human research subject protection.

The CITI Refresher course training is required every 3 years after the initial Basic course is successfully completed.

Conflicts of Interest in Research Involving Human Subjects - CITI

This optional module is available through CITI as well. The module consists of 9 sections and a final quiz. It takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Core Clinical Training - CCRT

The purpose of the Core Clinical Research Training (CCRT) is to prepare participants to coordinate cost-effective health care research which protects the rights and safety of human subjects, achieves recruitment and retention outcomes and contributes to the science of health care. Participants completing the training will be prepared to coordinate research studies in compliance with the Good Clinical Practices and federal regulations concerning human subjects research.
