HawkIRB is the web-based IRB application and review system. HawkIRB Training sessions provide basic information about technical aspects of the HawkIRB system and guidance about content for specific sections and questions in the HawkIRB application. These sessions are for anyone preparing to submit a HawkIRB application for the first time and for those who would like guidance about completing HawkIRB forms.
These sessions are intended to teach investigators, delegates, and research team members how to prepare HawkIRB applications to facilitate the IRB review process. There is a two-part HawkIRB Training series. Attendance at the New Project session is recommended before attending the second session on Investigator Responsibilities after IRB Approval.
Pre-registration is recommended. Click here to register.
