New Medical Committee Review

As of July 1st, all submissions are required to be submitted through InfoEd. You must have proper security access to create electronic submissions. For more information on electronic submissions, visit our InfoEd Resource Materials page.

Typically, the same protocol materials are required for Full vs Expedited Review, however the number of copies required differs.  Additionally, you will note below that certain types of expedited protocols do not require the Common Protocol Cover form.

For Expedited protocols that ONLY involve secondary data analysis of identifiable Protected Health Information (PHI) from health records/pathology slides/radiographic images (no subject intervention or follow-up), complete only the “Health Records Review Protocol” form.
