Clinical Trials at Partners Hospitals

Partners HealthCare affiliates, led by Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, have a long, rich, and diverse tradition of excellence in clinical research that continues to expand today.

The extensive resources for training clinical investigators and performing high quality translational investigation include:

  • An integrated, full service primary, secondary, and tertiary care hospital system with access to large numbers of both local patients with common diseases and national and international patients referred for evaluation of rare disorders
  • More than 600,000 square feet of research space
  • A diverse population of thousands of basic and clinical scientists studying topics ranging from very basic molecular biology to direct patient management

The Research Study Volunteer Program, RSVP for Health, where individuals register to be notified about clinical studies in their areas of interest, is one of our expanding services to further clinical research.

Researchers can search open clinical trials at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and other Partners HealthCare institutions.


Both Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) have established clinical research support programs to help investigators facilitate basic & clinical research collaborations.

PCRO is responsible for developing, negotiating, and executing agreements and budgets for industry-sponsored clinical research at some entities within the Partners HealthCare hospital system. Please note, the PCRO website is now located on the Partners Research Navigator.
