Obtaining Research Services within UIMCC
The University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago provides campus researchers with a variety of tests and procedures at a reduced rate. View the current policy [DOC].
Check with the specific service providers to determine what test/procedure your study requires. Ask for the current CDM ("Charge Description Master" - full charge) for the hospital fee ("technical charge"). Procedures and tests may include a professional fee as well; contact names for that are included, as appropriate.
