Clinicians in Baptist Health facilities are currently engaged in hundreds of clinical studies. These studies include Phase I/II/III/IV/PAS, investigational drugs, devices, humanitarian use devices (HUD/HDE), investigator initiated studies, biospecimen, registry, observational, and investigational procedures.
