Clinical Trials at El Camino Hospital

Clinical Trials at El Camino Hospital

El Camino Hospital offers our patients the opportunity to take part in the latest research studies.

Clinical trials are research studies that help investigators develop and evaluate new treatments for disease. Every medical treatment available to you today was first tested through a clinical trial. There are many benefits of volunteering for a clinical trial:

  • Access to new treatments that are being tested to determine if they’re safe and effective. 
  • Close monitoring by a research team.
  • Adding data that may lead to future medical advancements.

If you’d like to volunteer for a study, it’s important to understand the clinical trial process and what it’s like to participate.
