Dear SOM Clinical Research Community,

The CRSO is excited to announce that SOM SOP 401.1, Obtaining and Documenting Informed Consent from Adult Research Participants, has been issued. The SOP will take effect on 6/15/2022 and applies to all SOM human subjects research. If you have created your PaTS profile and indicated that you are responsible for obtaining consent from adult participants, you will shortly receive an email notification from PaTS to complete a new task.

What next?

  • Be sure that you and all members of your research team who are involved in consenting adult subjects have created a PaTS profile.
  • Login to PaTS to review the SOP and complete your attestation, no later than 6/14/2022
    You may also view the SOP on the CRSO website.

The CRSO will host two informational sessions to provide a general overview of the SOP, answer questions, and demonstrate how to attest to the SOP in PaTS. Similar information will be presented at both sessions, so choose the session that works best for your schedule. The sessions will be held on June 1st from 1:00-2:00 PM and June 2nd from 2:00-3:00pm. Click here to register for either session.

If you have any questions about the SOP, PaTS, or the informational sessions, please email

Thank you!
