Required Training


Depending on your role here at U-M, there are several required trainings that are related to human subjects research. This is a set of the most commonly required training.


The Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship (PEERRS) 
PEERRS certification may be required for participation on a study or project team, depending on your role (e.g., Principal Investigator), the funding source (e.g., NSF), and/or the type of research (e.g., human subjects).

HIPAA Training
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy rule governs both clinical and human subjects research areas. Training is required for anyone who has access to identifiable patient data.


Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program - Good Clinical Practice Course
The CITI Program’s GCP for Clinical Trials with Investigational Drugs and Medical Devices - U.S. FDA course is designed specifically for clinical researchers participating in human subjects research to have an understanding and knowledge of the federal regulations, International Conference for Harmonisation (ICH) Regulations, and Good Clinical Practice guidelines that apply to clinical research.
