Informed Consent Template

The institution requires all research submitted to and approved by WIRB to utilize a special UF Informed Consent form template for WIRB.


1. WIRB or your sponsor may have their own version of the consent. This must be adapted into UF’s template for WIRB consent forms (revised 01/21/2019).

Please note that this template must include UF’s specific language for (a) HIPAA authorization and (b) costs / payment associated with study and study-related injuries.

2. If WIRB or your sponsor writes your informed consent for you, it is still your responsibility to insure that the approved consent form is in UF’s template and includes the appropriate language.

3. If your study involves any clinical procedures that might result in subjects being billed, you must verify with the Clinical Trials Compliance office at (352) 273-5946 that the language matches the Clinical Trial Agreement (if needed) and that billing mechanisms are appropriate.
