Clinical Research

The Clinical Research Team of the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation is a team that works in conjunction with faculty, residents, fellows, medical students and other researchers on all aspects of their clinical research.  From IRB application, grant submission, completion of the project, presentations, publication and project closure, the Team is involved in all aspects.  We currently have retrospective review studies, long term follow up studies, and prospective studies including multi-center trials.  We are also one of the few departments at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics that has an Umbrella IRB for retrospective studies.
