Workshop goal:
The purpose of this session is to provide medical educators an overview on completing IRB applications and navigating Vanderbilt IRB’s study submission system (DISCOVR-E) and the study review process.

Workshop objectives: Participants will:
1. List routine requirements for the IRB submission process.
2. Navigate the IRB’s on-line electronic study submission process.
3. Practice completing an IRB submission form.

Session description:
This session will briefly review the regulations governing research with human subjects. We will discuss the different types of Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews that applications undergo, i.e. exempt, expedited, and full review. Participants will learn about the IRB submission process, appropriate documents, and helpful hints utilizing the resources available at Vanderbilt. Participants will have the opportunity to work on their own IRB application and will navigate the online application process using “DISCOVR-E”. This session is recommended for recent GIVME Grant recipients.

Note: This session counts as your annual IRB renewal training.

This workshop is open to VUMC faculty, residents and staff
