The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), a Consortium member, has launched a new web-based training tool for University of Minnesota clinical research professionals who work with human participants, and their supervisors. The Human Research Training website is a free, easy-to-use tool to help these researchers identify and maintain the appropriate training, certification, credentials, and immunizations. “Previously there wasn’t a systematic way to identify what research training was necessary or a system to track and maintain training compliance,” said Megan Hoffman, CTSI Workforce Development Program Manager, Clinical Translational Research Services. “This tool provides the linking and connectivity between U Learn and Moodle in one spot — it works to provide training uniformity across our vast research enterprise. The tool doesn’t add to the training requests, it simply tracks them in one place.”
