Participating in a Clinical Trial

Clinical trials give our patients access to brand new treatments that are not widely available. Participation is also a great way to honor a loved one who has battled a disease by helping scientists better understand how to treat it. Are you or a loved one thinking about participating in a clinical trial at AdventHealth Orlando? Every research study has guidelines that determine eligibility. You can explore the trials we offer and contact the research department conducting the study to see if you qualify.
