What's New 2016:

12/2/2016

Effective January 1, 2017, “all NIH-funded investigators and staff who are involved in the conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP), consistent with principles of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 (R2).“

Note that GCP training for researchers conducting clinical studies is in addition to the University’s human participant protection training. If your funding agency requires GCP training, you must maintain documentation related to that training. The OUHSC HRPP does not monitor GCP training compliance.

GCP training is available through the University’s CITI Program subscription.  If you would like instructions for how to access the University’s CITI GCP training, please contact the OUHSC HRPP at 405-271-2045 or send an email to irb@ouhsc.edu.
