Have you ever wondered why your doctor has chosen a particular medication or procedure for you? Was your doctor's decision based on experience? His or her education? Medical research?
The answer from your doctor likely may be because evidence indicates that it may work for you, given your particular circumstances. Some of this evidence is discovered through clinical trials conducted at Mission Hospital's Research Institute.
Occasionally, patients will have the opportunity to participate in clinical studies. If you are interested in learning more about clinical trials, learn more information with our FAQs, Helpful Links and Glossary of Terms and most importantly talk to your doctor to see if a clinical trial is right for you.
Our mission at the Research Institute is to conduct and support a variety of research studies that keep Mission Hospital at the forefront of medical care while supporting the advancement of science through evidenced based medicine. Our goal is to discover and share knowledge gained through clinical research that will improve the health of all people.
