The Patient Oriented Research Certification Program is no longer offered or required by the School of Medicine Office of Human Research. SOM faculty and staff involved in the design, conduct or reporting of human subjects research are required to complete the CITI Training program per IRB requirements.

Please visit http://www.upenn.edu/regulatoryaffairs/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=23&Itemid=8 on the IRB website for information about training requirements and how to access the CITI Training.

Read the memo from Susan Ellenberg dated May 7, 2008 regarding this change in requirements for online training in human research protections.
