myIRB Training

HRPO provides technical training on how to use the myIRB system. Available sessions are listed below and are offered monthly. Private sessions (for individuals or groups) may be arranged upon request.

All sessions are held virtually in Zoom, which can accommodate up to 100 individuals. Registration closes 1 workday prior to training. Each registrant will receive an email with an invitation to the Zoom meeting and session materials.

Important notes:

Session attendance is not appropriate or permitted for individuals granted limited access because they are restricted from performing the activities presented during myIRB training.

Information on the IRB review process and protocol preparation is not included. For guidance in these areas, check out HRPO’s Help Services. For information about Single IRB (sIRB) Review, contact Carissa Minder.

All users are urged to attend this session prior to working in the system or attending other training sessions.
  • Modification/Continuing Review/REF/Closure Forms. This 2-hour session provides an overview of the Modification form and the way changes should be done in myIRB, the Continuing Review form, the Reportable Event Form, and the Closure form used to close studies that exist in myIRB. Registrants are expected to be familiar with basic navigation and functionality, which will NOT be provided during this session.
