CITI Training

All UMass Chan investigators and staff are required to complete Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) online training at https://about.citiprogram.org.

If you have an existing CITI account and need to add University of Massachusetts Worcester as an institutional affiliation, log in to CITI and select "Add Institutional Affiliation."

Under the University of Massachusetts Worcester affiliation, you must enter a umassmed.edu email as your institutional email so that your training dates display automatically in RMS eIRB. You are free to enter any emails you choose as your primary and secondary emails. For help finding the institutional email setting, see eIRB Job Aid - CITI Training (https://umassmed.sharepoint.com/sites/RMS/IRB).

TIP: Do not remove other institutional affiliations if you have them. When you add University of Massachusetts Worcester as an additional affiliation and add the applicable courses, CITI will transfer credit for any modules required by UMass Chan that you completed under a different affiliation within the relevant timeframe. You must still complete any modules that are unique to UMass Chan to log a completion date for them and to complete the UMass Chan certification process. Contact CITI support directly with any login or credit transfer questions.
