COVID-19: Back to Campus CITI training

AAMC and CITI Program have collaborated to launch a complimentary course to train staff, students, and faculty on COVID-19 safety, for their return to campus. The course was made possible by the contributions of several academic organizations and includes presenters from University of Maryland School of Medicine, University of North Texas Health Sciences Center, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Yale University, and Northwestern University.

This course announcement is also being distributed by several member organizations, such as AAMC, so we request that organizations coordinate with senior decision makers to ensure we receive only one setup request per organization. Independent affiliates of subscribing organizations should submit their own request for course access, as authorized by a decision-maker at that organization.

This course will be available to UMass faculty, staff, and students through October 1, 2020. It is not mandatory.


  • Discussion of recommendations by the CDC, NIH, and OSHA
  • Designed for staff, students, and faculty at higher education and research organizations
  • Optional modules on specific areas such as research with human subjects and safe lab reactivation involving animal research
