Since 1998, institutions around the world have used PRIM&R's At Your Doorstep program to educate their staff and the wider research ethics and oversight community in their area by bringing education directly to learners.
At Your Doorstep provides an easy, practical way to ensure that stakeholders in your institution's human research protections program (HRPP)—including IRB administrators, chairs, members, compliance personnel, institutional officials, and researchers—understand and implement the latest regulations, and can apply ethical principles governing research.
Offering a combination of courses is an effective, economical way for your institution to meet its obligation to deliver continuing education. At Your Doorstep programs range from a half day to two full days, depending on your institution's needs. We encourage you to collaborate with neighboring institution(s) to defray the cost of the program, provide networking opportunities, and to broaden the learning experience for all participants. Contact us for help finding institutions in your area.
At Your Doorstep programs have been held at more than 250 institutions ranging from small regional health centers to large government agencies. Institutions are encouraged to collaborate locally to host an At Your Doorstep program. Offering this program in conjunction with your local IRB consortium is a great way to share the educational benefits and also network with colleagues in your region.
