Our Model Program at St. Vincent's
The Research Associates (RA) Program Director at St. Vincent's and Founder of NARAP, Dr. Keith Bradley, initiated his first RA program at St. Vincent's Medical Center, and twenty years later this is where he is still directing clinical research. This founding program is used as the model for all of our Member Institutions.
The RA Program at St. Vincent's conducts trainings, both for RAs and for future NARAP institutions. It is the institution that initiates pilot studies that are later used as a gateway for national clinical research studies.
For twenty years, St. Vincent's Medical Center has been a gracious host to the RA Program, offering support and demonstrating the capability of a hospital and RA Program to enter into a symbiotic relationship, that is mutually beneficial.
