Why Should You Participate in One of Our Clinical Trials?

Our research aims to improve health outcomes for the women of Oregon and Southwest Washington. We want to ensure our patients receive the best quality treatment and also have a good experience participating in our studies, because their participation helps us meet our goals. Many women find that participating in a clinical trial has other benefits, such as:

Woman receiving ultrasound scan by obgyn
  • Helping other women by improving healthcare or medicine. For example, we may be studying a new medication that helps reduce heavy menstrual bleeding in women with uterine fibroids.
  • Receiving the product we are studying free of charge. For our birth control studies, participants receive birth control in addition to some preventative health care, such as STI testing and pap smears.
  • Receiving financial compensation for time and travel
