Human Subject Protection (HSP) Training and HIPAA Training

Human Subject Protection Training and HIPAA Training must be renewed every three years.  Human Subject Protection Training may be completed through Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI) or through the Clinical Research Training Course (NIH).

HIPAA training is available through the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative (CITI)

  • If you already have a CITI account, you do not need to register again.
  • If you do not have a CITI account, you will need to register and create your own username and password. Please select Georgetown University as your institution. You can print out a certificate upon completion for your own records. CITI automatically keeps track of Georgetown University participants and profiles us with completion data.

**NOTE: Human Subject Protection Training and HIPAA Training are two separate courses.  BOTH must be renewed every three years.**
