Committee member: community representation - McGill University
The McGill Institutional Review Board for the Faculty of Medicine, a research ethics board, is in search of members to fill roles for community representation. This is a volunteer position and will require at least a two -three-year commitment. The Board meets monthly from late August to mid-June, usually on the second Monday of each month (except for statutory holidays). Meetings begin at 4PM with an average duration of 2-3 hours. Meetings are conducted in person at the McGill University campus, but accommodation can be made for attendance by videoconference when necessary. Travel (e.g., Taxi, Uber) or parking costs will be reimbursed. Meetings are conducted in English but documentation for review can be in either English or French.
We are in search of persons who are familiar with biomedical and/or health research, and/or who have an interest in patient or healthcare advocacy. Interested individuals are asked to contact Ms. Ilde Lepore or Ms. Sacha Young via email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
