New Investigators

Clinical investigators play a pivotal role in medical product development by providing FDA with the clinical data for regulatory decisions. Yet, the clinical trial industry faces a chronic shortage of well-trained, experienced clinical investigators committed to performing clinical trials over the long haul.

Conducting clinical trials can be a rewarding experience. Investigators who have the facility, equipment and staff needed have an opportunity to gain academically and financially if done right. Conducting clinical trials at the Columbus Clinical Services facility in Miami provides adequate space and equipment, administrative and nursing staff for investigators to conduct clinical trials. The required paperwork and study data is organized and managed by trained study coordinators. Our investigators are able to realize the benefits of conducting clinical trials without performing the time consuming tasks. Columbus Clinical Services is your answer to conducting clinical trials.

Columbus Clinical Services will identify and acquire studies of interest for investigators. We are seeking investigators who would be interested in conducting clinical research. Experience is not required. We will provide the necessary training. We are currently seeking physicians specializing in Internal Medicine, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology, Pain Management and Family Practice. Inexperienced investigators will be trained and included as a sub-investigator on currently enrolling and upcoming studies of interest. Experienced investigators will have an opportunity to be the principal investigator on new studies.

There are many benefits to conducting clinical research:

•    Academically: being on the cutting edge of medicine, advancing medical science and gaining respect from peers.
•    Professionally: providing to different treatment options to your patients and treatment to all patients including uninsured.
•    Financially: establishing a new revenue stream. Done well, conducting clinical trials can produce much greater margins than in standard medical practice.
