All UAMS residents are required to receive CITI training whether they are planning on engaging in research or not. Through their work in the hospital and clinics, most residents will be exposed to and will assist with research and quality improvement projects. Residents will also need to know the basic research protections in place for patients.
To complete CITI training, go to the CITI Program page. Here you can either log in if you have an existing account from a previous university, or you can register and create a new account under UAMS. If you have a previous account, you will need to switch your account to UAMS.
Upon registration, you will be requested to create a username and password and basic demographic information. You will then be walked through a series of questions about your possible research involvement. Residents will normally choose biomedical research under the first question. Additional questions will focus on other courses you may want to take such as, public health research, lab animal welfare as well as training for those residents associated with the VA and those working with the university or VA IACUC - Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.
Completion of the course can take a 2-4 hours, but can be completed over a number of days. All modules need to be completed and a score of 100% received on the quiz at the end of each module.
