GCP Training

All UAB investigators and staff involved in clinical trials, regardless of funding source, are required to meet the NIH policy regarding GCP training for basic GCP training and refresher GCP training every three years. The policy can be found at Policy on Good Clinical Practice Training for NIH Awardees Involved in NIH-funded Clinical Trials; NOT-OD-16-148​. Current GCP training (taken within the past three years) will be required for new protocols submitted to the Office of the IRB as of January 1, 2017. Ongoing protocols must meet this requirement by February 28, 2017.
