Institutional Review Board (IRB) 250
Due to the overwhelming number of inquiries from organizations seeking a more focused and topic-specific educational program in human research protections, PRIM&R developed IRB 250 as a follow-up to our highly acclaimed IRB 101sm.
IRB 250 is designed for professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of and insight into core topics related to human research protection programs (HRPPs). The curriculum also delivers an array of practical strategies for enhancing an institution’s HRPP/IRB operations via the use of best practices.
This program is taught by HRPP/IRB experts who are recognized leaders in the fields of human research protections and research ethics.
Each customizable IRB 250 program begins with an introductory section on the Criteria for the Review of Research as specified in the “Common Rule,” followed by four additional modules that best meet the needs of the host institution. Modules include:
- Applying the Expedited Categories,
- Applying the Exemption Categories
- Conflicts of Interest,
- Children and Adolescents
- Informed Consent
- International Research
- Internet Research
- Unanticipated Problems and Adverse Events
- Research with Biological Specimens
- And more!
To learn more about the IRB 250 program, please view a sample program agenda and read our module descriptions.
Here’s what participants have said about IRB 250:
