Getting Started

Getting a UT NetID if you don't have one

Make sure that all key study personnel (KSP) associated with the project have a UT NetID (username) and password because the IBC electronic system, iMedRIS, uses the UT NetID system to allow and monitor access. If you do not have a UT NetID, then you will not be able to log into iMedRIS. In addition, if any of the KSP associated with your project do not have a UT and iMedRIS account, you will not be able to add them to your project. If you have been issued a UTHSC email account, then you have a UT NetID; a call to the HELP desk at (901) 448-2222 may be necessary if you are unsure of your NetID status or have forgotten your password.

For non-UTHSC affiliated users who do not currently have a UT NetID, a UT faculty/staff member on your study team will have to sponsor the non-UTHSC individual into the UT system. We have provided instructions to request a sponsored NetID.

Note: Once you receive your UT NetID and password and your iMedRIS account has been set up, all iMedRIS/IBC correspondence will be sent automatically to your new UT email account. You may contact the HELP Desk at (901) 448-2222 for assistance in having your new UT email forwarded to another email account.

 

Getting your iMedRIS access set up

When you have a UT NetID and password, you have the ability to log into iMedRIS; however, you will not have all of the buttons you need to begin an application.

To obtain full iMedRIS access, you must do the following:

1. Log into iMedRIS with your UT NetID and password.
2. Click the "Logout" button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. NOTE: Logging in and out of iMedRIS will automatically alert the Electronic Research Administration (eRA) to set up your account.
3. All iMedRIS/IBC correspondence will be sent automatically to your UT email account. You may contact the HELP Desk at (901) 448-2222 for assistance in having your new UT email forwarded to another email account.
