Complete the CIP Job Analysis Survey

The CIP Job Analysis Survey gives those responsible for HRPP/IRB administration the opportunity to share how they accomplish their day-to-day work. Survey data will provide a blueprint for the CIP Council in shaping the content outline of the CIP exam so it is reflective of current practices, and in realigning the eligibility guidelines to ensure they are inclusive of those who are responsible for HRPP/IRB administrative functions.

All those whose primary job responsibilities involve the daily management and oversight of HRPP/IRBs (including both CIPs and noncertified individuals) are encouraged to participate. Please share this survey with your HRPP colleagues to help us ensure that all HRPP/IRB roles are recognized.

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Individual responses will be kept confidential and will be combined with those of other respondents.

Participants can access the survey here. The deadline to complete the survey is July 12, 2019.
