The IRB 101 tutorial covers the basics of human subjects research and provides important practical information about navigating the IRB process at UW.
Who is required to take this training?
Required for students and residents who are the Principal Investigator on an IRB application.
Summary of requirement
Student and resident researchers are typically the most inexperienced with conducting human subjects research and the least likely to be required to take human subjects training because of an external funding requirement. Adding an institutional requirement to complete the IRB 101 tutorial covers an important gap by providing IRB training to novice researchers who are not otherwise required to receive training on conducting human subjects research.
