Research & Clinical Trials

Research Begins Here

Since 1968, we have served as a clinical research site, consistently improving the delivery of healthcare and quality of life for our patients.

Currently, more than 600 research projects are being conducted in partnership with the faculty at UT Health Science Center San Antonio.

These advancements bring about direct improvements in the care of University Health System patients. From basic scientific research to translational studies (“bedside to bench”) and clinical trials, outcomes result in improved treatments and cures, enhanced diagnostic capabilities and novel medical devices.

Participating in a Clinical Trial

Participating in a clinical trial is always voluntary. Before entering a clinical trial, it’s important for patients to understand the possible benefits, risks and questions to ask.
