How do I add a Point of Contact in O.R.C.A.?

  • If you are listed as study personnel on a protocol, but are not designated as a Point of Contact and you require access to the current IRB approved documents, contact the OCR at 210-567-8555 and request to be designated as a Point of Contact.

  • If an individual needs access to the current IRB approved documents and they are not currently listed as study personnel on the protocol, the PI will need to submit a personnel change request to IRBMail@uthscsa.edu adding them to the protocol and designating them as a Point of Contact.

  • PLEASE NOTE: if you are listed as a Point of Contact on an IRB protocol you will receive all automated notifications for progress reports coming due on a protocol.
