Research is an integral part of our mission at Palmetto Health.

We have a Clinical Trials Department, two institutional review boards, a Scientific Review Committee and a Grants and Contracts division. We are one of the six members of Health Sciences South Carolina, the country's first statewide life sciences research cooperative.

Residents and fellows are an integral part of research at Palmetto Health, and we provide mentoring to young investigators. We have staff, including a physician, who assists investigators with their projects, from quality improvement (QI) to clinical trials. Our assistance includes the areas of literature review, proposal development, grant submission, data analysis, and manuscript preparation. Research administration (RA) partners with clinical departments both at the level of providing research lectures as well as working with individual investigators. As many residents and fellows perform quality improvement projects, we have developed a close collaboration between RA and QI.
