Relevant IRB policies/procedures:
Non-FHCRC PIs: If you are the principal investigator on a study submitted to the FHCRC IRB, but your primary affiliation is with another institution, click here for your human subjects training requirements.
Human subjects training is required for All FHCRC Personnel involved in the design, conduct, or reporting of human subjects research conducted at FHCRC or through the Cancer Consortium. Training must be completed every 3 years. The IRO will track your training and send reminders. [detailed requirements and FAQ]
Do you need human subjects training? Take a brief survey to find out. (FHCRC faculty/staff only)
Follow the links on this page for more information about training requirements and options.
FHCRC lectures and CITI web-based training are entered automatically in our database. If you have taken other training that meets the requirements, please send documentation to the IRO. [list of accepted training]
Had training already? Check for your name in our database.
The IRO has a sample letter to project officer/grants manager attesting to human subjects training by investigators/key personnel. [download Word doc]
Individuals who fail to meet the training requirements may no longer be involved in human research. The IRO will notify the employee, their supervisor, and the Division Director. The employee would need to respond to the email confirming they would not be involved in research; they can be reinstated when they complete their training.
If the lead investigator of a study fails to meet the training requirements, the IRB will close the study. It can be reopened when the lead investigator completes the training.
The FHCRC/UW Cancer Consortium requires Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training for those involved in the conduct, reporting, or evaluation of clinical intervention or prevention trials testing the use of an FDA regulated drug, biologic, and/or device. For more information on GCP training requirements, visit the GCP Training Page.
