Education & Outreach

The Office of Research Compliance (ORC) is committed to increasing our presence and availability to the TCU research community. Our education and outreach program started in Fall 2022. Whether it’s Cayuse or TCU policy updates, to any changes in federal regulations, you can now be well informed about all things from your ORC as it is related to human subject research.  We will have several opportunities for faculty and students to receive IRB education and training. These include the IRB 101 – Bootcamp, IRB Office Hours, Human Research Protection Learning Series, and Consultation/ Classroom Education Requests.

IRB 101 – Cayuse Bootcamp

*This training session will be offered every semester*

Come learn about the IRB and the specific processes involved for human subject research. We will also offer a Cayuse Boot Camp to help familiarize you with the online system before you prepare your submissions for review and approval.

Spring 2024 – The IRB 101 training session will be held in person at Scharbauer Hall, Room 1010 on January 31st from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

IRB Office Hours

The TCU Office of Research Compliance will offer IRB office hours for faculty, research staff, and students. Bring your IRB questions or inquiries about the new online submission system, Cayuse. The TCU research community will have one opportunity each month to meet with ORC staff face-to-face and assist with your research needs.

In addition, the ORC will also hold office hours for the Burnett School of Medicine, which started in the Summer of 2023. For all Medical students and clinical faculty, we welcome you to request a one-on-one meeting with ORC staff. Please fill out and submit your request below, using the IRB Education Request form.
