Center for Innovative Clinical Medicine

What is the Center for Innovative Clinical Medicine?

The Center for Innovative Clinical Medicine was launched in January 2010 as the central facility to promote clinical and translational research strategically within the hospital. The Center was also designated as a Core Clinical Research Hospital by the related project of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in March, 2017. It is active as a center assuming a pivotal role in the project of translational and Clinical Research Core Centers. Based on Okayama University Hospital’s basic philosophy, which is “to provide advanced medical care with kindness, and to cultivate excellent human resources,” the Center for Innovative Clinical Medicine seamlessly and strategically promotes clinical research, investigator-initiated clinical trials, and sponsor-initiated clinical trials at the hospital.
