HRPP Education & Training

HRPP education and training in research ethics, regulations, and methodology are fundamental to the University’s mission to promote the highest standards in human research protections.

The University of Virginia requires all individuals conducting research involving human participants to complete an initial online Human Subjects Research Protection training course and then to recertify every 3 years. There are separate courses for those involved in health sciences and social/behavioral sciences research. For more information see HRPP CITI Training.

Beyond the CITI training requirement, HRPP educational offerings include a wide array of learning opportunities, from online learning shots, to continuing education sessions, to graduate and undergraduate courses for academic credit, that cover a broad range of ethical, regulatory, and methodological topics.

The Virginia IRB Consortium provides additional opportunities for education for IRB staff, IRB members, and researchers throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as for collaboration on issues related to human research protections and IRBs.
