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 clinical trials.


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 the required training at
