Personnel Changes

The IRB no longer reviews routine personnel changes.


Changes in study personnel MUST be submitted using the process outlined below to OCR, except when submitting  a change in PI or Co-PI or disclosing a potential conflict of interest.   A change to PI/Co-PI or new/updated conflict of interest disclosure must be submitted through the IRB amendment process. Adding new duties or removing critical duties to those currently approved by the IRB may require an IRB amendment. 


Prior to adding personnel, ensure all required training and/or required Research Scope of Practice forms have been completed. Personnel change requests should be consolidated whenever possible. Limit personnel requests to no more than 1 submission per week.


    • If you need to change (add/remove) one person on up to 5 protocols
    • For all other personnel changes
      • Modify the current Inst M form, Step 2 Institutional form or the B-2 (personnel) form with tracked changes.
      • Email the modified form to OCRmail@uthscsa.edu. Copy the PI(s) on the email.
