Virginia Women's Center is able to play an active role in the field of clinical research because of our ample facilities, our four staff members and five providers dedicated to performing clinical research and our strong passion for advancing science and medicine. Since 1997, when Virginia Women's Center was first chosen as a clinical research site, we have received a tremendous response from our patients that has enabled us to participate in over 50 studies which have contributed to the safety and effectiveness of medicine for women.
Clinical research at Virginia Women's Center allows us to provide our patients with therapies, some of which are not yet available to the general public, to keep our providers and staff abreast of advancements in women's medicine and to help our patients take an active role in their health care.
The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) refers to clinical research participants as "medical heroes" for they write that "it is said that the greatest gift is one which is given anonymously, giving when you do not know whether you will get direct personal benefit. This is the gift that you have given by taking part in clinical research." At Virginia Women's Center, we commend and thank all of our past "medical heroes" and encourage you to learn more about how your participation in clinical research can benefit the future of medicine for women.
