Researchers that DO NOT have an Eye and Ear appointment

For researchers who conduct research at the Eye and Ear and do not have an Eye and Ear appointment and where their role in the study is to have either direct contact with Eye and Ear patients or require access to the Eye and Ear medical record,  the hospital can grant researchers an Honorary Researcher appointment.

The appointment may be 

  • Honorary Researcher
  • Honorary Clinical Researcher
  • Honorary Clinical Researcher - Audiologist / Orthoptist / Nurse

Applicants should complete and submit an Honorary Researcher Application (MS Word; 116kb)

All potential Eye and Ear Honorary staff must also supply a:

  • Police check
  • Working with Children check (if working with children in project scope and contact with a child is unsupervised, direct and a part of the person’s duties)
  • Health Record Act training (if not AHPRA registered)

*From 1 March 2016, GCP training is required for Principal Investigators (PI) of interventional trials or drug/device trials requiring a CTN notification. GCP training is required every three years. It is likely that the mandate for GCP training will be extended over time to include all clinical researchers. All other PIs and clinical research staff are strongly encouraged to complete GCP training and keep it up to date.  The training should be TransCelerate approved.
