More than 37 years ago, MultiCare began conducting research in the communities we serve. Since then the MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation was formed and has grown to become the largest community-hospital-based research center in the Pacific Northwest.
Our team values the dedicated group of physicians, advanced practice providers and support staff who strive to advance medicine and bring the latest treatments to patients in their own communities. At any given time, we offer more than 200 clinical trials in all phases of research to patients in the regions we serve.
Your support of research is essential to its success. MIRI invites you to contribute to research and advancing patient care by becoming an investigator.
A major strength of our research program is the depth and breadth of MultiCare’s integrated health network. Due to this strength, we have:
Nearly limitless opportunities for research in multiple settings across a wide range of medical roles
Many inpatient and outpatient settings with both adult and pediatric populations
Epic electronic health records that allow research in our system to be fully connected within all patient facilities
We keep quality, patient-centered care at the forefront of all we do. We partner with physicians and other medical professionals with the necessary qualifications and credentials to provide quality, safe and compassionate medical care to our community.
Research credentialing is the formal, systematic process of verifying, screening and evaluating qualifications and other credentials that include education, licensure, relevant training, experience and current competence.
We welcome any healthcare professional interested in research to apply for clinical research credentialing at MIRI. First, complete our short Credentialing Application. Then, submit it along with your CV/resume to [email protected] for consideration.
