Clinical Trials – Multi-Specialty

Your Role in Research

A clinical trial is a research program conducted with participants to evaluate a medical treatment, drug or device that may not yet be approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as required in the United States. The purpose of clinical trials is to find improved methods of treating different diseases and special conditions.

People participate in clinical research for a variety of reasons. Patients who volunteer can gain access to alternatives to the "standard" treatment before it is available to the general public. A benefit to participation is that subjects are monitored closely by our medical staff, and receive all procedures and medication at no cost.

Clinical research is not only beneficial for those who participate, but also for fellow patients. It is very important for the advancement of scientific understanding and improvements in medical care. Such advancements lead to medical breakthroughs that help people all around the world.
