Analyst News

The MCTO and the CRAO offices are working together to better serve you!

Effective January 6, 2014, the MCTO will offer services to create billing calendars.  We aim to be an additional  resource for establishing a study specific billing calendar,  in addition to answering your basic MBECT questions. Our goal is to reduce the number of questions and  decrease the time to response to CRAO's review.  This will give you more  time for other study activities.

For more information please contact Jill Malayang, via email at or by telephone at 734.998.7460.

IRBMED has updated the Informed Consent Templates pages on their website in order to provide easier navigation between the Standard ICD Template and the newly added Specialty Templates.
