Ethics Review Committee and Downloadable

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ETHICS REVIEW COMMITTEE (UERMMMCI RIHS ERC)

As early as 1997, the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, Inc. (UERMMMCI) had an ethics review committee, which functioned under the Office of Research Education and Development. In 1994, the Research Development Office was expanded and renamed Research Institute for Health Sciences with Dr. Fernando S. Sanchez, Jr. as Director. Two years later, the Ethics Review Committee (ERC) and the Technical Review Committee were created, paving the way for what would be later formalized as the institution’s answer to competent ethical practice in research.

In 2014, the Ethics Review Committee (ERC) was officially granted the highest level of accreditation - Level 3 - by the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB) and international recognition by the Forum for Ethical Review Committees in the Asian and Western Pacific Regions(FERCAP). Valid for a period of three years, the certificates were officially awarded on November 25, 2014, at the 14th Forum for Ethical Review Committees in Asia and the Western Pacific at the Taal Vista Hotel, Tagaytay City. Then Chair of the ERC Dr. Jennifer M. Nailes, Secretary Dr. Jose Ronilo Juangco, and three members of the Committee, received the certificates.

Currently, many of the former members of the original 2012-2014 ERC still serve on the Committee, even as other members have been added. There are now 16 individuals composing the ERC, varied across age, gender, specialty and affiliation.
