HIPAA Training for Researchers

The Missouri State University Institutional Review Board (IRB) requires all investigators (including student researchers) proposing to conduct research involving protected health information (PHI) complete HIPAA training. The university uses online training modules through CITI to meet this requirement.

If the proposed research involves protected health information (PHI), researchers must complete the online training through CITI.  The Certificate of Completion, or Completion report, available at the completion of the training module is to be downloaded and attached to the application in Cayuse IRB.

Faculty, staff, and student employees (including graduate assistants) must access these training modules through CITI Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPS) Training.   Please follow these instructions and if you have questions, contact
