We partner with patients to make advances in health care. Clinical studies are the basis for all improvements in health care. We partner with people who are healthy and with patients who have medical conditions, from every ethnic background and age group. The treatment of illness improves every year because of advancing medical science and research but we cannot succeed without patients as partners. We hope that you will consider helping us to help others, by volunteering to be in a clinical study. The Division of Clinical and Translational Research (DoCTR) is the home for patient-oriented research in the Department of Anesthesiology.
