Training

  • All persons must show proof of IRB training. This includes persons who will not have contact with human subjects and students serving as research assistants.
  • USD will accept proof of any IRB training course taken in the United States, including NIH or CITI.
  • IRB training courses are available online through the CITI website. Register as a University of San Diego affiliate - your @sandiego.edu email address gives you access, free of charge. (NIH trainings are no longer available as of 9/26/18).
  • Training certificates are available upon completion of the CITI course. Be sure to download and print a copy of the certificate for your records, as IRB training certificates will be necessary to complete the IRB application.
