The CPHS serves as the IRB (Institutional Review Board) for Dartmouth College, the Hitchcock Clinic, Dartmouth Medical School, Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and the Department of Veteran Affairs (White River Junction).
The CPHS determines if a study meets the federal definition of research: "a systematic investigation including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge."
The consent process must provide potential participants with sufficient information to make informed choices about either beginning or continuing participation in research. The process involves a dynamic and continuing exchange of information between the research team and the participant throughout the research experience. The consent form is a tool to assist the researcher.
All investigators and research personnel must complete training in human subjects protection prior to initiating research activities. Go to: Education Requirements
