Upcoming Training Sessions

IMPORTANT: In keeping with the University’s recent guidance to reduce the number of in-person meetings where possible, we feel it is important to cancel the March and April eIRB 101 training sessions. If you were taking the course to satisfy the in-person activity requirement for Principal Investigator Human Subject Recertification, the IRB can grant an extension to complete training. Please email for assistance with your compliance training requirement.

Training Sessions: Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Fundamentals: Understanding and Applying GCP to Human Subjects Research (JHM IRB)

Good Clinical Practice or ‘GCP’ training for investigators and study-team members is increasing becoming required by institutions, sponsors, and the NIH.  This 90 minute course will explain the elements of the International Conference for Harmonization’s (ICH) principles and specific guidelines for Good Clinical Practice.  Attendees will be introduced to the GCP Principles, and will explore investigator responsibilities in human subject research, focusing on the areas of trial conduct (experience, resources, and physician duties); performance (communication with the IRB, protocol compliance, and investigational product management); ethical research (safety oversight and informed consent); and recording/reporting (data acquisition, progress summaries, and safety-event reporting).
