This pharmacy manages all drugs in clinical trials approved by the hospital, and the drugs needed in projects initiated by the moderators.  A specific pharmacist has been assigned to manage clinical trial medication since 2019. In view of the fact that the clinical trial pharmacy's workload has grown substantially, an additional pharmacists has been responsible for sharing the management so as to ensure the quality and the performance of the operation.

Service and Characteristics
The Clinical Trial Pharmacy has dual access control (an electronic lock and a key lock), an emergency power supply for all refrigeration equipment, and an independent locked storage cabinet. In 2014, a real time temperature alerting system was set up to ensure the storage quality of medicines. To enhance the safety of the subjects' medication, prescriptions and drug delivery were computerized in January 2018. The operating space of the trial pharmacy was increased in 2019. Since  October 2019, the trial drug withdrawn would be kept by the responsible trial pharmacist. In March 15, 2020, the hospital passed the American AAHRPP international certification (Full Accreditation), in which the Clinical Trial Pharmacy is an indispensable part.
