Welcome to the Novant Health IRB electronic submission portal 




Registration and activation is a multistep process.  Please use the [Register] button on the right to begin.  This login and password are not linked to the Novant Health network or the Dimensions/Epic medical record system.  Novant Health team members are encouraged but not required to use their corporate ID (abc123) as their user ID.  After your registration request is submitted, an IRB coordinator will review it for completeness and need for access.  Before your user account is activated, the IRB must have on file a copy of your resume or curriculum vitae and a current certificate showing human subjects research training from CITI.  Once those are obtained, you will receive an email containing a link to set up an initial password.


CITI Human Subjects Research Training

The Novant Health IRB requires that all research personnel complete human subjects research training from  Training from other sources such as NIH are not accepted.  Users should select affiliation with “Novant Health” and choose the appropriate learner group based on your position or type of research being conducted.  Novant Health team members must affiliate with “Novant Health” and complete that curriculum.  If non-Novant Health research personnel have current CITI training through affiliation with another institution, that training may be accepted on a case by case basis upon review of your course completion report.  Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training is also available to all users but not required for access to the IRB submission system.
