Generally, personnel listed on studies reviewed by the Education and Social/Behavioral Sciences IRB should complete the UW Social and Behavioral Course, and personnel listed on studies reviewed by the Health Sciences or Minimal Risk IRB should complete either the UW Biomedical Course OR the VA Human Participants Protections Course (if listed on a VA study).
