For Physicians and Sponsors
Getting approval for research
In order to conduct a clinical trial at any Hoag Hospital facility, the
first step is to contact the Hoag Clinical Research Office (CRO). The
CRO works directly with physicians, research staff and industry sponsors
to facilitate all Hoag requirements for the conduct of research.
Institutional Review Board
Hoag utilizes Western Institutional Review Board as its preferred IRB.
Requirements and submission documents can be found at:
Enrollment and Study Timelines
Enrollment is competitive and time is of the essence. Every moment lost
in the start-up process is another lost in the enrollment timeline, which
can mean delays in FDA approval for sponsors. Both Principal Investigators
and Research Coordinators understand this concept and strive to consistently
meet enrollment goals and provide high quality data.
The Clinical Research Office works in tandem with Hoag’s Legal Department
to expedite negotiation and execution of study agreements for industry-sponsored
Hoag Hospital facilitates initial and ongoing Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
and Human Subjects Protection training for all researchers participating
in the conduct of research. Investigators and Research Staff can complete
