Relevant IRB Policies and Procedures

Human subjects training is required for all Fred Hutch personnel involved in the design, conduct or reporting of human subjects research conducted at Fred Hutch or through the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium. Training must be completed every three years. For additional information, refer to the full training policy.

Do you need human subjects training? Take a brief survey to find out. (Fred Hutch faculty and staff only.)

NOTE: Principal investigators, or PIs, who have a primary affiliation outside of Fred Hutch should refer to a different set of human subjects training requirements.


Documentation

The Institutional Review Office, or IRO, tracks human subjects training requirements and sends reminders when additional training is due. Fred Hutch lectures and web-based training via the Collaborative IRB Training Initiative are also tracked in our records.

Had training already? Check for your name in our database.

If you have taken other training that meets the requirements, please send documentation to the IRO.

Failing to Meet the Training Requirements

Individuals who fail to meet the training requirements may no longer be involved in human research. The IRO will notify the employee, his or her supervisor and the division director. Employees can be reinstated when training is complete.

If the lead investigator of a study fails to meet the training requirements, the IRB will close the study. Closed studies can be reopened when the lead investigator completes the training.

Additional Requirement for Good Clinical Practice Training

The Fred Hutch/UW Cancer Consortium requires Good Clinical Practice, or GCP, training for those involved in the conduct, reporting or evaluation of clinical intervention or prevention trials testing the use of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-regulated drug, biologic and/or device. For more information on GCP training requirements, visit the GCP Training Page.
