Admin Staff: Editing and Supporting Multiple System Roles Through OASIS

In the clinical 4th year, OASIS is the system of record for student schedules and course rosters. All changes and updates to schedules and rosters must be made in OASIS. Those updates will be fed to other systems that rely on clinical data. 

There are two areas to connect users to a course that will provide administration:

  • OASIS Course Administrators:  This associates the OASIS users with the OASIS course for any the following tasks:
    • Course Roster
    • Gradebook
    • Student Performance Evaluations (Grading)
    • Course Events
    • Course Setup  / Instructor Groups
  • Instructor Groups: This manages the list of groups and specific roles that will be fed to Canvas (LMS), Competency Checklist and Blue (Course/Faculty Evaluation)


OASIS Course Administrators:

To add a course administrator to a specific course, the OASIS user must have a director role.

  • Select Users and Modify Admin Access.
  • Search for the user.


  1. To review a list of all users within a specific role, click "Get User List."
  2. To look for a specific name or user information, type the data in the text field and click "Search by name."
  3. The results of Step 1 or 2 would be displayed in the drop down.   To update the Admin Access, click on View Access.

If the course is currently not available to the user, click on "Add a department or course."

  1. Select the course(s) to add the Administrator.
  2. Click "Add courses."

The courses will be added the user's home page and in the Select Course under the Course Menu.

Click update.

OASIS to Canvas, Competency Checklist and Blue: Instructor Groups:

The following groups are controlled through OASIS Instructor Groups

  • director_clinical
  • faculty_clinical
  • intern_clinical
  • manager_clinical
  • resident_clinical
  • tech_clinical

Users can:
