Conducting Research at UCF Health

What if I plan to conduct research at UCF Health? Do I have to submit to both UCF IRB and the HIPAA Privacy Officer for UCF Health?

The IRB office and the HIPAA Privacy Officer for UCF Health have important, but separate, roles to play before human subjects research -- which may include interactions with patients and/or access to and use of their personal medical records -- can be conducted at UCF Health.

The PI must obtain approval from both the UCF IRB and the UCF Health Privacy Officer (as applicable) and is responsible for ensuring that appropriate documentation is uploaded to the study in iRIS and provided to UCF Health.


The study (including recruitment of study participants and/or review of their personal medical records) can begin only when the PI has obtained an IRB approval letter and approval from the HIPAA Privacy Officer for UCF Health.
