New to Miami? If you have completed CITI training elsewhere, you may be able to transfer your records to Miami by logging into your account and affiliating with Miami or updating your primary institution. Part 2 of the training introduces you to the Miami oversight system and expectations and will likely save you and the IRB time in creating and reviewing your application.


Beginning three years after initial qualification.

Once basic requirements are met, Miami researchers are required to either, a) complete the online refresher modules (CITI) or b) attend a Miami Program Orientation session every three years. (Note: when collaborating with other institutions, those institutions may have additional requirements).
