Clinical Partnerships

The Office of Clinical Partnerships (OCP) aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas, data, and resources with external partners and the Notre Dame community to establish new working relationships across the full spectrum of health.

The OCP is working to provide:  

  • A single, clear portal for external partners wishing to access the broad spectrum of Notre Dame education, research, and scholarship activities related to health and well-being.
  • An easily navigable interface for faculty, students, and staff to access data and records, biospecimens, physician collaborators, patients, and other critical assets necessary for their work.
  • A platform to integrate educational and internship programs.
  • An innovative program to access resources in support of research partnerships involving Notre Dame and external clinical, translational, and biomedical researchers.

The overarching goal of the OCP is to support the establishment of new innovative research alliances, ranging from binary research collaborations to multi-institution partnerships.

The OCP is part of the University’s forthcoming Health and Well-Being Initiative, which aims to advance health-related research, scholarship, and policy and help connect individual research programs to broad, significant, and emerging health-related challenges.
