If you are interested in conducting research at MultiCare or would like the MHS IRB to be your IRB of record please read the IRB Handbook first.

Human Subject Training

All investigators and board members must prove they have Human Subjects training. There are two ways to fulfill that requirement. If you have taken a class on Human Subjects Training a copy of your transcript highlighting that class or a certificate from the training meets the MHS requirement. MultiCare offers a free online training module.
