Clinical Research

The clinical research program employs clinical research associates who work in the emergency department (ED) seven days a week during busy shift hours (9 a.m. to 9 p.m.) screening, enrolling, and collecting data for all clinical research projects being conducted. The clinical research program also gives college students who are interested in gaining experience in clinical research and medicine/public health the opportunity to complete a semester rotation in the ED as part of a course offered at the university.
