Here you can find a comprehensive list of studies in our department that are looking for participants.

Getting Treatment Through a Study: Many of our Clinical Studies provide treatment, which may include medication, psychotherapy, or other approaches. Treatment is generally provided at no cost.

It is easy to find a study by searching RecruitMe. You can search by key word, by particular disorder, or by using other search terms.

Clinical Studies

We conduct many types of clinical studies in our department, including clinical trials and observational studies. A clinical trial is a medical research study that is evaluating the effectiveness and safety of a specific type of treatment. Well-performed clinical trials are the best way to discover better new treatments. An observational study is a medical research study that investigates a disorder or illness. Well-performed observational studies are essential to the progress of all branches of medicine, including psychiatry.
