Information for health professionals and investigators

Established in 2014, the USC Clinical Trials is delivering ethical, expert research across a range of therapeutic areas. Working with a network of qualified medical practitioners in public, private and independent practices, we aim to create a hub of clinical research capabilities across the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions, and increase the therapeutic options available to clinicians and their patients.

Referring patients

We encourage all trial participants to maintain routine visits with their referring physician, and are committed to the timely and effective sharing of progress reports and health outcomes.

To discuss a patient’s eligibility or for more information please contact the USC Clinical Trials.

Work with us

Each clinical trial requires an expert and committed team, including:

  • the Principal Investigator, who is accountable for the conduct of the trial, recruitment and safety of all participants
  • co-Investigator(s), who are medically qualified and provide medical support and expertise to the principal investigator
  • clinical research coordinator(s) who are trained in clinical research (from a nursing, science, pharmacy or health-related background) and provide project management, recruitment and administrative support

We welcome expressions of interest from medically qualified individuals who are experienced or specialising in a specific therapeutic area, and are interested in partnering on a clinical trial. The USC Clinical Trials can provide full training and certification in GCP (online) and meet any other clinical trial training needs.

If you are a clinical trial professional, coordinator or trainee please contact the USC Clinical Trials to express your interest in working with us.
