Who should complete UAB IRB training?

You need UAB IRB training if you are an employee or student at UAB or TCHA and you

  • are listed as an Investigator or "key personnel" (see ​Key Personnel Flowchart for guidance); or
  • screen potential participants and/or obtain informed consent; or
  • have IRB-related responsibilities.

You need UAB IRB training if you are not affiliated with UAB or TCHA and you

  • Have an Individual Investigator Agreement whereby the UAB IRB is your "IRB of record."
You do not need UAB IRB training if you 
  • are not affiliated with UAB or TCHA in any way (e.g., student, employee, consultant); and
  • work at another institution that has its own IRB.

In these cases, you should have your research work reviewed by your IRB.
