In accordance with federal regulations, it is necessary for all individuals identified as “key personnel” on a research project involving human subjects to complete required educational training on the protection of human research subjects.

Current UNTHSC IRB Policy requires that, when submitting a protocol for IRB review (both new and continuing review), the Principal Investigator must include written verification that each of the key personnel on that project has successfully completed the online educational tutorial. No protocols can be reviewed for new or continuing reviews that are not in compliance with this requirement.
