Member List

It is WellSpan Health practice not to provide the names and numbers of any of our IRB members publicly.  The Board operates within the federal regulations with respect to the review and approval of human subjects research.  It is also our policy that IRB members recuse themselves from voting on studies for which they are serving as principal investigator, co/sub-investigator, or are contributing to the conduct of the study.

Independent IRBs

We hope to provide you with plenty of usable data in a timely fashion; therefore, WellSpan Health will consider using an independent IRB.  Contact the IRB staff for more information.

About the provider search

This search will provide you with WellSpan Medical Group and Northern Lancaster County (Ephrata) Medical Group primary care physicians and specialists. If we don’t have a WellSpan Medical Group physician to meet your criteria, the search will expand to include community physicians who partner with WellSpan Medical Group physicians through the WellSpan Provider Network or provide care to patients on the Medical Staffs of WellSpan’s Hospitals.
