The Boston University Clinical and Translational Science Institute (BU CTSI) scheduling system allows project coordinators to request appointments for participants in studies that use the CTSI General Clinical Research Unit.

Principal investigators must approve coordinators who enter the system and give them permission to studies that schedule participants. Coordinators can request appointments beginning one week after the current date. Earlier dates must be scheduled directly with a CTSI scheduler or nurse manager by phone.

Visit the CTSI scheduling system website. You will be prompted for your BU Kerberos username and password.

For more information please contact Ridiane Denis, RN, Interim Administrative Coordinator, at ridianed@bu.edu.
