Clinical Trials

The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine participates in many single and multi center clinical research trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, philanthropic organizations and industry.

Since the clinical research program was initiated in 1984, numerous clinical protocols have involved patient volunteers in studies of promising new therapeutic agents and devices. Patients in clinical research protocols develop very special relationships with study personnel, and appreciate the unusually thorough attention to detail and the inherent ongoing educational opportunities. Faculty, trainees and nurses have the opportunity to participate in developing new knowledge and contributing to evidence-based medical care.
