The Oberlin IRB encourages students, staff and faculty involved in "human subjects" research to complete the relevant learning modules from the online CITI Human Subjects Research Educational Program.

The CITI Human Subjects Research Educational Program  consists of different courses:

  • Students conducting no more than minimal risk research: This course is recommended for introductory level courses where students are introduced to basic research methodologies. For higher level courses take the Social and Behavioral Investigators or
  • Biomedical Research Investigators course.
  • Social and Behavioral Research Investigators: Choose this group of modules for investigators involved primarily in Social and Behavioral research with human subjects.
  • Biomedical Research Investigators: Choose this group to modules for investigators involved primarily in Biomedical research with human subjects.
  • IRB Members: A basic introduction.


Once you have completed a course, you will be able to access and complete other modules that may be of interest.
