IRB Administrator 201

IRB Administrator 201 is a one-and-a-half day course that will provide knowledge and strategies that an IRB administrator and chair can implement on a daily basis, or to address urgent issues, and skills to ensure success in carrying out responsibilities related to IRB oversight.

This program reviews and analyzes each of the eight regulatory criteria that the IRB must consider during protocol review, examines the ethical principles that underlie these criteria, and discusses how the criteria are applied.

This course has been designed for those who conduct reviews as part of a convened IRB or through the expedited procedure, and who understand the fundamentals of IRB operations. IRB Administrator 201 is as an intermediate level course which complements the introductory IRB Administrator 101 course. For details about the course, download a sample agenda.

What Past Participants Are Saying

The course provides a foundation and an understanding that I found hard to come to on my own. I have read the regulations, but this really tied everything together with the historical background, origins of the principles, and the reiteration of the importance of the principles.

It should have been longer!

The entire presentation was helpful. It should be required for all IRB members.
