IRB Training

Meharry Medical College requires all principal investigators, key study personnel, and students who are conducting human subjects research to complete the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI) before research can begin. You will choose your own username and password when you register for the program.  Contact the Human Protections Administrator at or 615.327.6735 if you need assistance.

Please know that the entire educational program and its questions need not be completed in one sitting. You may save your work, log out of the system, and return at your convenience. You will need to re-enter the username and password each time you want to log into the CITI program.

Also, for your convenience, save your user name and password in a retrieval place so that you can log into this program multiple times, if desired.

The National Institutes of Health also offers online training, which you may complete at any time. However, only the CITI program satisfies the Meharry IRB human subjects training requirement.
