E-Mail Confidentiality Statement Update

In the past, we have required that in each document in which e-mail contact is solicited or suggested, the following statement is to be included: "Please note that we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of e-mail communications."  As of June 4, 2012, the inclusion of the e-mail confidentiality statement is no longer a requirement.  More information is available in our online eNews letter.

Emergency Medicine Research

Effective immediately, IRB Committee A will review all new applications for research that involves the emergency exemption to informed consent, aka "Emergency Medicine" interventions.  More detailed information is available in our online eNews letter.
