IRB Administrator 201 Agenda

The Administrator 201 course describes a framework for analyzing challenges administrators and chairs face in ongoing IRB operations. This one-and-a-half day course will provide knowledge to address issues, strategies an IRB/REC administrator and chair can implement, and skills needed to be successful in carrying out responsibilities related to IRB/REC oversight. IRB Administrator 201 serves as an intermediate level course complementing the introductory IRB Administrator 101 course. Download the agenda as a PDF.

A portion of the program will utilize peer review with the goal of improving local documentation. Attendees are asked to bring hard copies (2) of the following:

  1. Your institution’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for expedited review; and
  2. The first page of IRB minutes and redacted review for two studies (approximately 3 pages).
