About Us

Institutional Review Board or Ethics Committee (Ecs) were formed by different institutions to safeguard the rights, safety, and well being of the human subjects involved in clinical studies in their respective sites. Its first institutional Ethics Committee was formed in October 2004 through the initiative and recommendation of Dr. Aretas P. Singson-Alday, Dean JFSM, and also with the recommendation of Dr. Rowena Auxillos, UPHRMC Medical Director. The Aim was to serve the clinical researchers of the JONELTA Foundation School of Medicine and the University of Perpetual Help Rizal Medical Center.



In September 28, 2005, the University of Perpetual Help Rizal Corporate Research Center was conceptualized and finally established January 02, 2006. The Institutional Ethics Committee initially formed last 2004 was then restructured and the Institutional Review Board of the University of Perpetual Help System under the Corporate Office for Research was created. Standard Operating Procedures were then formally revised to be implemented in serving both the University faculty member and Hospital staff/trainees as well as outside clients of the Perpetual System.
