Volunteers and Patients

The Clinical Research Program at Newton-Wellesley Hospital gives patients access to cutting edge treatments without having to travel far from home.  Because of the Hospital’s partnership with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and Dana Farber/Partners Cancer Care, Newton-Wellesley Hospital is able to offer suburban patients the opportunity to participate in research studies offered at Boston teaching hospitals while continuing care with their physician at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.


Volunteering for a Clinical Trial
People volunteer for clinical trials for a variety of reasons including to help in the advancement of science, for treatment of a disease for which good treatment does not currently exist or to improve the medical care they are receiving.
