An integral component of a sound research proposal addresses the potential need for IRB review. We encourage proposal writers to prepare as early as possible to allow for IRB review at the hospital partner and the university.
WSUGME will help residents through the decision process and provide IRB guidance.
The WSU Division of Research has a wealth of information on the WSU IRB page. First-time submitters (for all parties on the application, including faculty) need to complete Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) training modules before approval can be granted.
Residents rotating at Ascension Crittenton Hospital submit proposals to Ascension IRB for Crittenton-based research.
Residents rotating at Karmanos Cancer Institute may need to submit here.
Assessing the efficacy of a process, program, or system is inherently beneficial to physicians, hospitals, and the public. To accomplish these endeavors, residents are required to actively participate in Quality Improvement (QI) projects. Please consult your program for further details regarding the internal process to be followed.
WSUGME purchases an annual institutional membership for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). IHI aims to improve health and health care around the world, and a central aim is to educate how physicians can systematically improve the environments in which they provide care.
All enrolled residents have access to the full IHI Open School curriculum. Please contact our office for registration instructions.

Publishing a QI project
QI projects have a unique academic impact that is distinct from other types of academic publications. The GME office is here to help residents break down publication barriers so that QI contributions can reach others in the academic community. We recommend residents utilize the Standards for Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence (SQUIRE) guidelines during the writing process. See also the following article published in JGME.
