Required Training for UF IRBs

If you are involved in research with human subjects, their tissue, data, or medical records, you must complete the following mandatory training requirements. New myIRB studies cannot be submitted unless all required training has been completed and is up-to-date.

  • NOTEOnce you have completed the training it takes 2 – 4 business days for it to process and load into myIRB.

Researchers and all study staff are required to take the following courses:

IRB 803 (renewal required every 3 years)

**The IRB no longer tracks separate HIPAA training.  If your job responsibilities require HIPAA Training, you must complete that annually through myTraining (Course Number PRV800 – HIPAA General Awareness) as required by the UF Privacy Office.


**NOTE: Effective 12/05/2019 – all study staff involved with NIH-funded clinical trials must take Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Training.  Please refer to our GCP Training Investigator Guideline regarding this topic.


In addition, individuals involved in research with human subjects should complete our RECOMMENDED READING specified below.

Training exception for Non-human research

Mandatory Training is not required for Non-human review types. However, you will be required to complete the mandatory IRB Training if (a) your study is found to be any other review type (e.g. exempt or expedited), or (b) you are added to another study in myIRB that does not qualify as Non-human.
