Dartmouth Health IRB (DH Human Research Protection Program)

If you are planning to join a project that is managed via Dartmouth Health (specifically DHMC or affiliated hospitals), you will need to meet the requirements and have that project managed by the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Human Research Protection Program (DH IRB)

The "library" section of the IRB submission site is an excellent resource for information about standard operating procedures, checklists and most of all templates for the DH IRB.  The templates can be used to write IRB protocols depending on which type of IRB submission is being completed. To locate the submission site, click on the Access eIRB in green on the website.  From there click on "IRB" and this will direct you to the "library" site where templates are located.


Below are examples of DH IRB submissions from Dr. Gardner's research work to use as examples.
