Human Subjects Research Training

More Information

For more information contact Laura Isaacs, at

Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Institutional Review Board (SBCH IRB) requires documentation of human subjects research training for all researchers and key research personnel for any project that involves human subjects (for both full board or expedited reviews).

Key research personnel are those individuals involved with identifying, consenting, and treating potential research participants or interacting with personally identifiable data, and those involved with applying to and interacting with the IRB. A research study will not receive final IRB approval until all key research personnel have submitted documentation of human subjects research training.

Cottage Health Research Institute provides training via the CITI Human Subjects Research Training education program. Investigators are assigned specific training to best meet the needs of the type of research being conducted. For more information or to request instructions on how to complete the training, contact Laura Isaacs, at
