How we merge advanced patient care with innovative research
Volunteer for a Clinical Trial
Explore new treatment options and help future patients.
Clinical trials test the safety, value and side effects of new procedures, medications and devices in humans. They are the final step in a long, careful process of advancing patient care with new discoveries. We are involved in 150 trials for the treatment of heart and vascular disease at any given time, and each is approved and monitored for safety by an Institutional Review Board.
Patient volunteers play a vital role in clinical trial research. Eligible patients may find a number of potential benefits to participating in a clinical trial, such as access to new drugs or procedures that may improve their condition and contributing to medical science that may help others now and in the future. Volunteering for a clinical trial is a personal choice and requires careful consideration. Find answers to frequently asked questions about clinical trials.
