Mandatory Training

It is mandatory for all personnel (including Principal Investigators) to have participated in a training session covering laws and regulations pertaining to animal care and use and to complete species-specific educational training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), hosted by the University of Miami.

All new employees with anticipated animal contact must be listed on the protocol. Instructions for adding individuals to your protocol can be found HERE.

In addition, SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Research Integrity Office requires research ethics education for all basic science & clinical investigators (including faculty, postdoctoral fellows/associates, clinical residents/fellows, students, lab staff, research nurses, clinical research associates and individuals from affiliated Universities participating in SUNY Upstate research projects).

Completion of CITI coursework and filing of the Training Summary form must be completed before an individual begins training/working with animals in research.
