Training and Educational Resources
This monthly program focuses on educating research faculty and staff on current research processes or new developments within MCW and Froedtert. The presentation is generally held on the last Tuesday of the month. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch. A beverage and dessert are provided.
The Human Research Series, intended for MCW employees whose job responsibilities include any aspect of human research, are optional modules that can be taken in any order. Individuals are welcome to choose which modules to attend, according to their job needs.
There are currently three modules (modules A, B, C) held quarterly on a rotating monthly basis, lasting 1.5 hours each. Topics are "IRB Processes", "Research Banks at MCW & Froedtert Hospital" and "Conducting Human Research at Froedtert Hospital: What You Need to Know". Sessions are typically small in size, allowing time for questions, interaction and networking.
The meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of every month, from noon to 1 pm in the MACC Fund building meeting room 3095. Several IRB staff members will be available on a walk-in basis to help you with the IRB review process. The first 20 minutes will be devoted to brief presentations on issues of general interest; the remaining 40 minutes is your time for questions and direct assistance.
The purpose of this educational event is to provide resources to the human research team member in the coordinator role that will expedite his/her ability to perform his/her job responsibilities in a manner consistent with federal requirements and guidance and other applicable policy. The focus of this course is the very basic day to day functions of conducting research with an emphasis on providing practical information and tools that can be used immediately.
Human Research Team members including: Clinical Research Coordinators, Clinical Research Assistants, Research Nurses, and other individuals responsible for the conduct of human research protocols. Course content is geared toward those with limited experience in their roles. Experienced human research team members seeking to broaden their knowledge base and acquire additional human research management skills are welcome.
