Training

All University of Rochester investigators are required to complete the IND or IDE training before submitting an IND or IDE application (respectively) to the FDA. Training is optional (but strongly recommended) for members of the study team who will be working on FDA-related aspects of the study.

These online courses are available in three locations: one in Blackboard for University of Rochester students, a separate version in MyPath for University of Rochester staff and faculty and a third version for the scientific public. They are the same course and each team member only needs to complete the version that is appropriate for them.

In both MyPath and Blackboard, use the search bar feature and the keywords "Investigational New Drug" for the IND course and "Investigational Device Exemption" for the IDE course.
