OUHSC HRPP/IRB Satisfaction Survey
Have you ever submitted a study or a protocol involving human subjects for review by the OUHSC Institutional Review Board (IRB)? The Office of Human Research Participant Protection (HRPP) at OUHSC is conducting a survey to evaluate the services that our office provides to researchers. If interested, please complete our short, 5-10 minute survey. This survey is anonymous, meaning no identifiers will be collected. The results of this survey will be used to evaluate and improve our services. 

The survey can be accessed by clicking on the following link or by copying and pasting the link into the address bar of a web browser: 

Please also consider sharing this survey with your colleagues.  If you have any questions or concerns with this survey, please email HRPP@ouhsc.edu.
