Education and Training

Human Research

  • Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program– Human research training must be completed by anyone working directly with human subjects or with data or biospecimens when it can be linked back to individual subjects.  All Principal Investigators (PIs), Co-Investigators, and those meeting the NIH definition of “Key Personnel” must complete training regardless of whether or not they have access to identifiable data/biospecimens or direct contact with subjects. Human research training must be completed every three years.  More information about how to fulfill human subjects training available here.
  • QIP Education Series– During the academic year, the Quality Improvement Program hosts an education series with monthly sessions focusing on various topics. Those attending a minimum of 3 sessions per academic year will receive human research training refresher credit. Attendance is open to all and participants can RSVP for specific session(s) they choose.

Laboratory and Biosafety

  • LABS Monthly Education Sessions – All laboratory personnel, researchers, and research staff are welcomed to join these sessions which includes topic driven presentations as well as time for questions and answers to address specific laboratory needs. These sessions do not substitute the required EH&S trainings which should be completed via the Harvard Training Portal.
