About Us

health-research-doctorClinical studies are conducted to collect information regarding the safety and efficacy of new drug and medical device development. There are several steps and stages of approval in the research process before a drug or device can be sold in the consumer market.

Established in 2002, the Medical Arts Health Research Group is committed to bringing the most advanced medical opportunities to the patients of British Columbia.  Medical Arts is comprised of a network of sites across the province that conduct Phase II through Phase IV clinical research studies.

Through strategic partnerships with our sponsors, the Medical Arts research team is dedicated to maintain the highest industry standards for quality and efficiency while always providing our patients with a positive and comfortable experience.

Medical Arts completed its first study in 2002 on hip fractures with great success, and we have since expanded our operations in many convenient clinical sites across the province.  Based on the needs of each community, outpatient studies are conducted in a broad range of therapeutic areas, including:
