You don’t have to be a researcher to support research. In fact, some of our greatest advocates are non-research caregivers! Complete this 6-question survey to let us know more about you and your feelings towards clinical research studies and clinical trials at UH.

Nurses, administrative staff, EVS, and all UH caregivers in between have a tremendous influence on providing more options in care for our patients, and improving healthcare and medicine as we know it. Learn more below and share these resources with family, friends, and patients.

Research is an integral part of the University Hospitals' mission – To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.

As a leader in medical innovation, UH has a rich 150-year history of medical breakthroughs & currently has over 3,000 active research studies being conducted across 24 different departments throughout the health system.

  • New treatments
  • New ways of using established treatments
  • Better ways to diagnose and treat individuals
  • Options for maintaining good health
  • How people are affected by different factors
  • More about medicine and healthcare from the patient’s point of view
