Our staff has over 200 combined years of clinical research experience.

Clinical Research is being conducted in a wide variety of specialty areas. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming involved in clinical research.

Cardiology Research

Black Hills Cardiovascular Research provides clinical research support for pharmaceutical, device, registry and investigator-initiated trial activity. Heart & Vascular Institute physicians and surgeons have participated in over 250 clinical trials (phase 1-4) in the past 20 years and collectively contributed over 10,000 patient years of clinical data. Participating physician investigators are reimbursed for their time and responsibility through RVU compensation.

Through clinical research, the community has access to treatments and devices before they are commonly available. When a new treatment is approved, physicians use clinical trial experience to quickly move innovations into standard practice.

There are currently 45 active trials and over 600 active participant volunteers.

Call (605) 755-4326 if you are interested in any of our clinical trials.

Additional clinical trial research opportunities are available through partnerships with major pharmaceutical companies.
