Resources are available to members of the Marshfield Clinic Institutional Review Board (IRB) to assist them in carrying out their duties. IRB members are responsible for adhering to the regulations and the policies and procedures of Marshfield Clinic. The Member Reference Manual contains details about meeting operations and guidance on specific topics. The electronic agenda for each IRB meeting is available to members approximately one week prior to the meeting. Primary reviewers are expected to complete a Reviewers’ Guide for each study they review.
