Health Sciences IRBs: Common Rule and IRB Submission Overview
The Common Rule and IRB Submission Overview presentation (formerly IRB for Beginners) provides an overview of the regulatory requirements for conducting human subject research at the UW and the IRB submission process for projects requiring review by the Health Sciences IRB. The goal of the presentation is to provide research personnel with the basics for how to successfully submit an IRB application.
No workshops scheduled at the moment.
This page will be updated as soon as we are able to resume presentations.
For additional research training opportunities please check out the Professional Research Education Program (PREP) courses.
Online Training for UW-Madison Researchers
The UW-Madison Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) requires certain training for personnel engaged in human subjects research. All engaged personnel are required to take Human Subjects Protections training and depending on the type of research being conducted, Good Clinical Practice and HIPAA Training may also be required. For assistance with determining which trainings are required for your research, please visit the HRPP Training page.
The HRPP link above also contains information about additional training opportunities (both online and in-person) available to UW personnel.
