Internal Study Centres

DZHK Clinical Study Units

The Clinical Study Units have examination facilities with standardised equipment that allow for recruitment according to DZHK guidelines. All DZHK Clinical Study Units are subject to regular internal audits (2018 and 2020) and carry the official DZHK quality label after meeting all quality criteria. The recruitment procedures in our DZHK studies are coordinated at the DZHK Clinical Study Units by our DZHK Clinical Staff. The financing of the DZHK Clinical Staff depends on the recruiting performance of the DZHK Study Center and the successful completion of internal audits.

At our member institutions there are DZHK Clinical Study Units where clinical trial participants are enrolled in our DZHK trials. The majority of our research facilities meet the requirements of a "DZHK Clinical Study Unit" (see grey box on the left).

Study centers that are not affiliated with a DZHK member institution but show excellent recruitment performance and fulfill the conditions for a DZHK Clinical Study Unit can also acquire the DZHK Quality Label starting 2021 (see external study centers).
