Institutional Review Board for Health Sciences Research (IRB-HSR)


Online Education: Learning Shots

"Learning shots" are brief, voiced-over Powerpoint presentations on a variety of topics related to human subject research at the University of Virginia.  The objective is to convey basic information and expectations about research processes and compliance.

If you can't open the presentation, that probably means you need to download Flash Player to your computer.  Remember to turn up your volume.  Read more here if you are having trouble opening or listening to the learning shot.

More learning shots are in development.  If you have a suggestion for a new topic, or have any comments, please contact Jean Gaare Eby ( ).

Learning shots are not meant to replace the IRB's in-person educational offerings.  For a schedule of upcoming classes, read more here.
