At USF, clinical research is primarily conducted at USF Health. USF Health is committed to providing the best clinical care available. This mission includes a large clinical trials operation, which advances our understanding of disease and its treatment.By connecting with the Office of Clinical Research at USF Health, you will have access to pioneering clinical trials that will help advance science and treatment.
USF Health includes the Morsani College of Medicine, one of the leading research-intensive medical schools in the Southeast. USF Health is the only academic medical center on the West Coast of Florida,with more than 900 health care professionals in more than 30 different specialties. Studies show that patient outcomes are better at academic medical centers nationwide, compared to other types of practices.
There are several ways to connect with clinical trials taking place at USF Health
It is important for patients to understand that many of the treatments being studied at USF Health are not available in the community. As such, we provide a unique opportunity for patients with diseases that are not well controlled to potentially improve their own health, and, to contribute to the knowledge about their disease and treatments that could benefit others. All studies are first approved by an independent review board to address medical and ethical issues associated with such trials, and patients are provided with written and verbal information regarding the study and potential risks and benefits.We look forward to hearing from you.
