Clinical Research Department
Springfield Clinic’s providers have participated in research for over 50 years with more than 400 clinical trials conducted to date. As a result, Springfield Clinic is continually among the top-enrolling sites in numerous multicenter clinical trials. Our program consistently meets study goals and maintains high patient retention metrics.
Clinical Research houses a highly-trained and dedicated staff including a director, a research manager, study coordinators, a recruitment coordinator and a regulatory specialist. Personnel continually adhere to current ICH/GCP, HIPAA and CFR guidelines and maintain GCP, IATA, CITI, CCRP and/or CCRC certifications as needed. Regulatory oversight may be provided either by local (inpatient) or centralized (outpatient) Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
The Research Committee, a sub-committee of the Board of Directors, provides oversight to all research activities performed at Springfield Clinic.
