Applications to be seen in the clinic are patient-driven, but require a referral letter from the referring physician who serves as their home medical team contact. Please discuss your participation in this program with your primary healthcare provider. See examples of Referral Letters.
Important considerations include:
The UDN can only accept a small number of participants. The UDN team reviews each application very carefully to decide who can be accepted into the study. Even if you are not accepted, you might receive some useful feedback about your medical condition.
You can visit the UDN website to learn more about this research study and apply online through theUDN Gateway. All patients apply to the same national gateway. The clinical sites, including Vanderbilt, will be assigned applicants for review, but do not accept direct applications.
