Clinical Trial Unit
Message from CTU Chairperson Dr.Asma Khan
Importance of continuous research for clinical care and health education needs no more emphasis. Education, clinical care and research are the cornerstones for teaching health centres. Rawalpindi medical university has the mission to impart evidence based research oriented medical education and to provide best possible patient care. Clinical Trial Units (CTUs) have been set up with a purpose to design, conduct, analyse and publish clinical trials and other well-designed studies which can be monitored at any stage by the regulatory bodies. Establishment of Clinical Trial Unit was a huge challenge for a public sector University in Pakistan due to lack of authentic research culture but under the leadership of Worthy vice chancellor Professor Muhammad Umer, it was possible to conduct safe and efficient clinical trials for new treatment interventions.
