We are pleased that you are considering University of Central Florida College of Medicine as a potential site for your clinical trial.

The University of Central Florida College of Medicine is an academic medical center located in Orlando’s growing Medical City, Florida. We are seeing exponential growth. We operate three outpatient clinics in the community. Our state-of-the-art UCF Lake Nona Medical Center and UCF Lake Nona Cancer Center opened in Spring 2021. At Medical City, we are in the good company of the Orlando VA Healthcare System and Nemours Children’s Hospital.

Our prime location allows us to serve six counties. Our patients are a collage of diversity- of various ethnic and racial identities, the spectrum of age, differing socioeconomic classes and educational levels, and coming from urban, suburban, and rural areas. We are able to recruit patients who are Veterans or active duty military. UCF also operates a student health center to serve our nearly 70,000 students- making us Florida’s largest university by enrollment. If you may have patients with rare diseases that need to travel to a clinical site- Orlando is a major travel destination! We expect that we will be able to recruit the subjects needed for your clinical trials.

Our clinical trial services include study coordination from start-up to close-out; risk analysis; coverage analysis; regulatory support, including IRB; recruitment, pre-screening, and enrollment; informed consent; patient exams and interviews; study visits and case reports; adverse event monitoring; data safety and monitoring board, if needed; investigational product management (randomization, maintenance, storage, dispensation); electronic regulatory binder for storage (and allowing or sponsor remote monitoring); and biospecimen processing and shipping.
