SPECIAL NOTICE ON CITI TRAINING FOR COVID-19: Back to the Campus
Le Moyne College’s IRB has added a new course to our subscription to the CITI Program. It is a six module course that provides the latest information on maintaining a safe environment for all campus activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also has elective modules for conducting human subjects research, working with patients as subjects who are infected or are suspected of being infected, and the safe reopening of animal labs.
This is a valuable resource for all members of the Le Moyne community. Other than stating that you have read the content or watched the video for each module, there are no quizzes for this course. Therefore, taking this course is not required for submitting an application to the IRB, and you do not have to include a completion certificate with your application.
