CITI Training

Basic CITI training
 

For Institutional Review Board (IRB) compliance, you will need to complete the online basic course in human subjects research with CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) under Einstein affiliation. Note that if you've taken these courses independently or with another institution, when you add them under Einstein affiliation, completed portions will transfer over and you'll  just be responsible for filling in any gaps. 

1)  If you have one, log in to your existing account at  citiprogram.org. If you don’t already have an account, you will create one - do not create duplicate accounts as this will prevent existing trainings you may have already taken from transferring over.

 

2)  Add your AFFILIATION for Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The process for this differs a bit depending on whether you have an existing account or creating a new one. Basically you search for / select “Albert Einstein College of Medicine.” under "Select Your Organization Affiliation" or under “Add Affiliation”.

 

3)  View the terms of agreement and privacy policy if prompted.

 

4)  Check the boxes to agree with terms of agreement, privacy policy and to affirm affiliation with Albert Einstein College of Medicine. (If you’re initially creating an account you will have to  then click "Continue To Create Your CITI Program Username/Password" and enter your name and email address *.)

 

5)  Enter your Username and Password, select and answer your security question(s), then click to continue to the next steps (you may not have to do this if you already have an account).

 

6)  Answer questions in step 5 then click "Continue To Step 6". You don’t have to answer fields that aren’t required.

 

a) If your “Department” at Einstein isn’t something else and otherwise clear, you could use PEDIATRICS for our lab.

b) If your “Role in Research” isn’t clear from the options, feel free to ask for guidance and provide options.

c) If you aren’t Einstein or Montefiore based, you can put your alternate contact info in the required contact lines (including office phone)

 

7)  Enter member information then click "Continue To Step 7".

 

a) In Question 1 be sure to select "SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL RESEARCH" as this is the basic initial CITI training you will need to complete at Einstein.

b) Skip Question 2.

c) Question 3: In terms of what you are currently slated to be working on in the lab per Dr. Molholm, you do NOT currently have to take the GCP course.

d) Questions 4, 6, and 7 are optional – you may select “No” or “No, not at this time.” Skip question 5.

e) Click “Complete Registration”, then click "Finalize Registration".

 

Congratulations – you’re registered! Click on your Einstein affiliation and then the hyperlinked course name to enter the course.

 

8)  Once done, you have an option to SHARE your completion report by email with rachel.hester@einsteinmed.org.
