Services and Resources

What We Do:

At the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, we have several departments actively engaged in clinical research in collaboration with Banner – UMC Phoenix. Our departments of Internal Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopaedics, Radiology and Surgery are currently committed to supporting Banner’s mission — making health care easier, so that life can be better. This is accomplished through high-quality clinical trials and other medical research. Our investigators participate in both multi-center, national and international Phase I–IV clinical research trials, as well as investigator-initiated studies across many medical fields in order to provide patient access to new therapies and treatments.

Who We Are:

In addition, we offer access to Electronic Health Record (EHR) data through the Clinical Research Data Warehouse, Banner Research Institute integration, managing protocols, clinical trial conduct — from start-up through study closure — and compliance monitoring.
