  1. Select “Drexel University” as your Participating Institution from a pull-down menu. You are not required to affiliate with any other institution. You will then answer questions 2-7 on this web page.
  2. The following page will request your contact and demographics information.
  3. On the “Getting Started” page you will be asked to select the desired/required courses; you are given the opportunity to select from Human Subjects Research, HIPS, Good Clinical Practice and Responsible Conduct of Research.
  4. You will then be asked to select your Learner Group for each training module selected. Choose the Learner Group that best fits the type of research in which you are most often engaged. The Learning Groups are:
    Group 1: Key research personnel conducting Medical, Biomedical, Nursing, Public Health and Psychology Research Investigations
    Group 2: Key research personnel conducting Social, Behavioral and Educational Research Investigations
    Group 3: IRB Members and ORRC Staff,
  5. CITI based HIPAA training, called HIPS, is required for all personnel in Learner Groups 1 & 3. You will select the HIPS training program based upon your specific Learner Group.
  6. If you have already indicated you will be taking the GCP or RCR programs you will again be asked to indicate your Learner Group (if you did not sign up for either GCP or RCR these pages will not appear). These two courses are optional for most people; however Principal Investigators and Clinical Research Coordinators conducting clinical trials involving drugs, devices, or interventional/behavioral treatments must complete the GCP course. Also, some federal awards require that grantees undergo education in RCR, and the CITI RCR course is one way to meet this requirement.
