Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre aspires to provide the highest quality of specialist care to patients. Ongoing clinical excellence requires evidence, generated from sound research, to critically review our clinical practice. Ultimately, we aim to improve patient care.
As part of the University of Witwatersrand’s academic teaching hospital complex, our role is to assist clinicians with all aspects of their clinical research at Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre. This also extends to building research collaborations within the university, and extending these both nationally and internationally.
The Clinical Research Office does not offer clinical drug trials, nor do we facilitate access to clinical drug trials for patients. If you are interested in clinical trials, please speak to your doctor about what is available.
Over a 1 year period, we approached 7382 patients and asked them whether we could access their data for research. 92% said yes. Research would not be possible without you. Thank You.
