USC Training Requirements

  • Human Subjects Training taken through the CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative) program is mandatory for all personnel conducting human subjects research. Confirmation of educational certification for all personnel listed in section in 2.1 will be required prior to the approval of research projects submitted to the IRB. Please see the current information regarding CITI training at USC on the OPRS (Office for the Protection of Research Subjects) website.
  • Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is also taken through the CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative) program; it is mandatory for all personnel conducting research that the IRB has determined to meet the NIH definition of a clinical trial. Per NIH, a clinical trial is “A research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.” Confirmation of educational certification for all personnel listed in section in 2.1 will be required prior to the approval of research projects submitted to the IRB. For more information about GCP training requirements at USC, please visit the OPRS website.
  • You can complete CITI training before obtaining an iStar account. The CITI and iStar systems operate independently of one another. Any CITI questions, please contact the USC CITI Help Desk at (213) 821-5272 or email citi@usc.edu.
  • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) training is a requirement for all faculty, USC/staff employees, students, volunteers, agents, and other certain individuals who have access to patient health information (PHI). This course can be taken online through the USC Office of Compliance website. For more information about HIPAA requirements at USC, please visit the OPRS HIPAA page.

If you have already completed any of the training referenced above and need it to be added to your iStar account, you can attach the certificates in a PDF format and send it via email to istar@usc.edu. In the subject line, please indicate that you want the certificates added to iStar profile.

CHLA Instructions

  • In order to obtain an iStar account, CHLA-affiliated individuals must first compete initial training in human subjects protections through CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative). Please consult the CITI Registration and Login Instructions for CHLA Researchers manual before you register with the CITI website. When you are ready to register with CITI, please go to http://www.citiprogram.org/.
  • Depending on the type of research you will be conducting, please select either Basic course – Biomedical –or– Basic Course – Social/Behavioral. If you will be conducting both types of research, please complete both courses. CITI courses are composed of modules and any modules that are in both courses will only need to be completed once.
  • When you successfully pass your CITI course(s), a report will automatically be sent to the CHLA office. Your iStar account will be created in 1-2 weeks and you will receive instructions (via email) from the iStar helpdesk on how to login. Please only contact the CHLA office if 2 weeks have passed since you completed your course and you have not received your login instructions. The CHLA IRB office may be reached at (323) 361-2265.
