Research & Education


From collaboration to innovation

Our research mission is to establish a nationally recognized research institute to develop and fund diverse research opportunities and educational programs. Our goal is to be the forefront of research in our region.

Our full time dedicated staff has an average of 5-10 years' experience in doing clinical research. We offer a full range of site services including regulatory/IRB submission, contract/budget negotiation and coordinator support for the Colorado Health Medical Group physicians and to other physicians in our healthcare system. Our primary clinical focus has been in the areas of cardiovascular trials and neurology trials.

Our medical director has over 25 years of clinical trial experience and is dedicated to assuring our program meets the highest standards. Our research manager has over 14 years of clinical trials experience in both academic and private practice settings. All staff that are eligible have earned their certifications in clinical research. We have handled phase 1-IV pharmaceutical trials, as well as IDE and post market device trials. Our dedicated research space allows for convenient access for our sponsors and trial monitors.

In research, it is our goal to lead rather than follow

Advances in medicine happen by supporting the innovative freedom for healthcare professionals to understand and optimally treat and predict disease through research. 

Providing World Class healthcare requires more than optimal care, it needs a strong investment in research. In this, it is our goal to lead rather than follow.

Research makes the health of our community stronger through:

  •   Improving patient care.
  •   Attracting our country's top physicians.
  •   Bringing the latest technologies and treatments.
  •   Keeping loved ones close to home.
  •   Improving our economy and creating jobs.
  •   Building a stronger community through collaboration.
