UH Research Credentialing Process

The UH Research Credentialing Process Provides Non-UH personnel proper access to UH patients’ Protected Health Information (UH PHI) under Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved research studies.

Effective September 1, 2017, the UH Clinical Research Center (UHCRC) will charge a processing fee for Research Credentialing applications. Case Medical Students are exempt from this fee.

Initial Applications: $150
Renewal Applications: $100

This fee is non-refundable. If you have questions regarding if you need to be credentialed, or if you qualify to be credentialed, please contact UHResearchCredentialing@UHhospitals.org BEFORE submitting an application.

The UH Research Credentialing process provides:

  • Access to UH PHI for IRB-approved research studies
  • Grants a UH-based title:
    • Research Faculty for MDs and/or PhD’s
    • Research Associate for all others
  • A UH e-mail address and IT access
  • Access to UH-sponsored research training programs

It is required for all Research Credentialed personnel to complete UH Clinical Research Education once credentialed. For more information, please contact ClinicalResearch@UHhospitals.org.
