Our Clinical Trials program at Prisma Health is critical to making advances in medicine and the care of our patients. In order to prove they are safe and effective, all medications, medical devices and medical procedures have to undergo medical research.

Clinical trials are offered to individuals with a wide range of conditions and illnesses. The goal of our Clinical Trials program is to help participants and future patients. If you choose to participate in one of our clinical trials, know that you will be under the gentle care of our clinical trial nurse manager, research nurses and other professional research staff. We currently provide clinical trials for drug, device or observational studies.
