The NIH Clinical Center will serve as a premier center for clinical research. A model of collaborative excellence, the NIH Clinical Center will lead through innovation in the design, conduct, training, and impact of clinical research.


The NIH Clinical Center is the clinical research facility of the National Institutes of Health. It provides patient care, services, training, and the environment in which NIH clinician-scientists creatively translate emerging knowledge into better understanding, detection, treatment, and prevention of human diseases for the health of a diverse nation.

There's no other hospital like it.
