The Catholic Health Institutional Review Board (IRB) oversees all clinical trials conducted by an affiliated individual or group within a Catholic Health hospital or offsite location. Its purpose is to ensure that these trials are compliant with guidelines outlined by the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), the National Institutes of Health, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The following information is intended primarily for researchers wishing to conduct clinical trials at a Catholic Health facility; however, others may view this information as evidence of our commitment to medical excellence, while still following a longstanding tradition of compassion.
Please submit all documents for new research, and continuing or expedited reviews through IRBNet.org. Proof of CITI Training completion should be added to the profile of the researcher or can be submitted with each project.
