Institutional Review Committee

The Institutional Review Committee is a committee of The Health Care Authority of the City of Huntsville. It is empowered by the Authority to review, evaluate, approve or disapprove any and all drugs, devices, procedures, or studies for use on human subjects, which are considered to be experimental. It is also the responsibility of the Committee to provide administrative oversight to insure that procedures designed for the protection of patient rights are being effectively applied.

The Institutional Review Committee is comprised of 12 members (and alternatives) of various backgrounds and disciplines, including lay members from the community, medical staff physicians, and hospital employees.
