IRB Training

CITI mandatory online training

All investigators, advisors/sponsors and members of a research team must complete online training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). Two courses are required: human research and responsible conduct of research. See our Mandatory Training Policy for details.

Classroom training

The Director of Human Participants Protection and Research Compliance is available to present to classes on topics such as human research ethics, submission requirements, and procedures, and/or the use of IRBNet. Please contact to schedule a presentation based on your needs.

IRBNet tutorial videos

We offer IRBNet Tutorial Videos, which have been customized for Marywood University. The brief tutorials last anywhere from one to four minutes and instruct on specific tasks within the system. They also coordinate with sections of our written IRBNet Instructions for Researchers document.  Please contact or call 570-348-6211, x. 2418 for the password to access the videos.

IRBNet training workshops

Visit the IRB's homepage for announcements about any upcoming IRBNet workshops. Workshops will also be announced on faculty and student email list-serves and communicated to faculty who teach research courses.

Track Changes: written instructions, tutorial video, and workshops

As the IRB and ERC require that any modifications requested are tracked in word processing software, we offer both written instructions and a Tutorial Video about how to apply the tracking feature in Microsoft Word. Please contact or call 570-348-6211, x. 2418 for the video's password.

Alternatively, you may contact the Help Desk in User Support Services to arrange one-on-one training or inquire about workshop offerings.

Please note that if your personal computer does not have a full version of Microsoft Word with the tracking feature, all computer labs on campus are equipped with full versions of the program and allow tracking to be enabled.
