Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin offer patients direct access to a wide range of clinical trials. Each of the trials has been approved by the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Institutional Review Board, or IRB. Involvement in a clinical trial is strictly voluntary and requires each participant to sign an informed consent form. To assure that useful data is derived from a clinical trial, strict eligibility requirements are in place.
