If you missed the workshop given by the staff of the Office for the Protection of Human Subjects, or even if you were there, you may want to attend one of these workshops given by me -- Leah Carroll, Haas Scholars Program Manager and Advisor. Note that they are timed to be very shortly after SURF and Haas Scholars human subjects selection, respectively.
I will go through, step by step, the things you need to do to get from 0 to approved, answering questions along the way. Then, I will "walk you through" two sample protocols -- one exempt, and the other non-exempt. The idea is to break down and demystify the process, making it less intimidating so that you are ready to dive in and make a draft of your protocol.
