Good Clinical Practice Training

As of January 1, 2017, the NIH requires all investigators seeking NIH funding for clinical research to have completed Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training. This includes the CCTS voucher support program. 

Sponsors or funding agencies may require researchers who conduct clinical research to demonstrate knowledge of good clinical practices.  Individuals seeking training in Good Clinical Practice (GCP) may complete one of two available Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) web-based courses:  Good Clinical Practice (US FDA Focus) or Good Clinical Practice (Social and Behavioral Focus).  Completion of a CITI basic human subjects protections course (Biomedical Human Research or Social and Behavioral Human Research) is a prerequisite for taking the GCP Course. Formal GCP training for clinical investigators is not currently required by the university.
