Investigator Initiated Clinical Research:
While not required by SLU, many industry sponsors mandate the completion of GCP training with refresher training every three years. In addition, the NIH Policy on Good Clinical Practice Training for NIH Awardees Involved in NIH-funded Clinical Trials (NOT-OD-16-148, effective date January 1, 2017), mandates GCP training every three years. SLU clinical researchers are able to take the CITI GCP training to satisfy these requirements. Researchers outside of a sponsor mandate are also encouraged to take the GCP Course in CITI to learn more about regulations that are unique to clinical trials and the importance of using good clinical practice in the conduct of clinical research. NOTE: GCP course completion does not count toward the mandatory IRB/Human Subjects Protections education requirement.
See the Training and Education page for more information about registering for CITI training.
