Welcome to the AAHRPP Site Visit Training Page

This site was developed to aid in preparation for our AAHRPP site visit that will take place on Monday, September 28th and Tuesday, September 29th.

The Harvard University Area IRB began the process of accreditation for our Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) in November 2019.  We have made it through two separate evaluations of our written materials (standard operating procedures, forms, processes) and the site visit is the last step prior to being accredited.

We know that being part of this process may feel overwhelming, especially given the times that we are living in. The IRB office has developed the materials found on this website to prepare all that are involved in this process and to make the site visit as stress-free as possible. 

We are available to answer questions at any time and provide you with as much information as possible prior to the scheduled visit. Here is our contact information - https://cuhs.harvard.edu/people 

Thank you for your help in obtaining accreditation for our HRPP!  Soon, we can proudly display this badge!
