Providence VA Medical Center, Rhode Island
Research and Development Service
Welcome to Research and Development
We invite Providence VA Medical Center Staff, our research partners, affiliated academic community, and most of all our Veterans to the website.
Providence is a unique research site in the heart of academic-rich southern New England. We have more than 230 research projects totaling over 17 million dollars in VA, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Defense (DoD), National Science Foundation (NSF), and commercial grants.
The VA Research's fundamental mission is to advance the healthcare of Veterans. The Strategic plan for 2012-2016 focuses on conducting research that best addresses this mission and ensures that research professionalism and protection of our Veterans' rights are top priorities.
The Providence VA Medical Center has a large funded research and development program, including studies in Rehabilitation Medicine, Cardiiology, Mental Health, Neuroscience, Substance Abuse, Health Services & Economics, and Pulmonary Disease. These studies enhance our ability to provide state-of-the-art techniques and treatments to our patients. At the same time, the research program helps Providence VAMC recruit and retain the highest quality health care professionals who treat our Veterans in the VA Clinics on a daily basis.
