We conduct many types of clinical studies in our department, including clinical trials and observational studies. A clinical trial is a medical research study that is evaluating the effectiveness and safety of a specific type of treatment. Well-performed clinical trials are the best way to discover better new treatments. An observational study is a medical research study that investigates a disorder or illness. Well-performed observational studies are essential to the progress of all branches of medicine, including psychiatry.
