Dear Graduate Students,
The roll-out of the new IRB process and the iMedRIS system has been challenging for some of us. As the Director of Graduate Studies for our department, I would like to hear about your experiences (positive and negative) and share common themes with the IRB.
If you attended any of the IRB/iMedRIS training sessions and workshops, feel free to share your feedback on these as well.
If you would like to share your thoughts, please send me an email briefly describing your experience and concerns, if any. Send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “IRB iMedRIS experiences” by Monday, February 9.
On a related note, please make sure to take advantage of iMedRIS resources on line, including a “Getting Started” guide and a video illustrating who needs to be connected to your study in iMedRIS and how to use the routing feature.
