In Our Learners' Words

Carolyn M.

Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs

“We are required to take CITI training every 5 years. I was very satisfied that the modules reflected current/new information; not just the same information from 5 years ago.”

I learned about all the underrepresented populations I will deal with as a future medical provider.”

Ruby P.

Family Nurse Practitioner

The audio option was nice and the case studies with explanations and examples help to apply the knowledge. From a Doctoral student perspective, the program was well designed and the content was pertinent to assist me in acquiring the knowledge essential in preparing me as a Nurse Researcher.

vicki s

Vicki S.

Gerontology Specialist

Excellent information in all of the modules. Some information was relatively new to me, and other information reinforced knowledge I already had. I liked the variety of techniques used, and especially, in most of the modules, they started with videos setting the stage for what was to come. Actually, I felt that this was one of the best learning experiences I have had via a written internet course. I also liked that different voices were used in the modules.
