The Nebraska Methodist College Institutional Review Board (IRB) is organized and operates under the authority of the Chief Executive Officer. The  IRB's  purpose  and  role  is  to  review  and  approve  (or  disapprove) proposed studies to ensure that:

         • Risks to subjects are minimized;

         • Risks to subjects are reasonable in relation to anticipated benefits;

         • Selection of subjects is equitable;

         • Proper informed consent will be obtained

Other appropriate safeguards are maintained as necessary to assure the safety of subjects, protect privacy and protect the rights of any subjects who are likely vulnerable to coercion and undue influence due to physical or mental illness.
