Clinical research is a fundamental and integral component of quality patient care.

At Carilion Clinic, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve.

The purpose of our research is to promote excellence in the quality of care to our patients. Carilion Clinic researchers include professional staff from a multitude of healthcare disciplines, including physicians, registered nurses, clinical research coordinators and data management specialists. In 2007, Carilion Clinic partnered with Virginia Tech to create the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute (commonly known as VTC). VTC will be housed in a 150,000-square-foot facility at the Riverside Center on Carilion Clinic's campus in Roanoke, Va.
