The nature of clinical research integrates various missions of the Conemaugh Health System – education, research and patient care.
The Research Program within the Conemaugh Health System is dedicated to supporting the research efforts of the medical staff, residents and students while ensuring compliance with all applicable ethical, legal and regulatory standards. The availability of sophisticated centralized resources offers Conemaugh investigators an exceptional research advantage.
Through this structure and the mentorship of many teaching faculty, research will become an important component of resident education and life long learning.
All research conducted on patients at Conemaugh or by Conemaugh employees must be approved by the Office of Research Administration (ORA). This includes research conducted offsite. The ORA provides guidance, support and oversight for all scholarly activities including research and publication. If you are planning to author a scholarly publication such as a book chapter or web article, please let the ORA know.
We are anxious to showcase a collection of scientific abstracts and publications, book chapters and textbooks produced by the medical staff and residents of the Conemaugh Health System. Together, we can demonstrate our personal commitment to scholarly achievement by creating an environment where clinical excellence and innovation thrive.
