Researcher Training

Researchers wishing to submit a proposal to EMU’s IRB should have undergone training in human subjects research. EMUrecommends the training modules provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which are free and available online. This training is available on the NIH website.

The NIH training program’s FAQ page contains helpful additional information. The NIH also publishes for advance review a PDFversion of the training.

After completion of the online training and quizzes, save a copy of the certificate for submission with the IRB proposal.

Researchers external to EMU who may have undergone human subjects training through another provider (e.g., CITI) are welcome to submit alternate certification with their proposal.
