Customer Service Survey


Training Requirements - Training is required for UA Faculty, Staff and Students who are conducting human research at the University of Arizona. There are links to help navigate the training program (CITI) and PowerPoints that help with the creation of new accounts for UA personnel or individuals coming from other institutions that might need to affiliate with the University of Arizona to complete their training. There are also trainings for Community members working on University of Arizona research projects.

IRB Training Opportunities - The UA HSPP Staff offer a variety of training each month on specific topics that are common areas of concerns, questions, or general issues for investigators. Also, the HSPP Office maintains office hours where individuals can visit the office to meet with HSPP staff members to discuss questions on existing projects or new proposed projects.
