The principal investigator of Encompass Clinical Research in Spring Valley, California, Dr. Hanid Audish began gaining familiarity with clinical research as a sub-investigator at the same institution. His interest in clinical research developed while he worked as a family medicine physician for Encompass Family Physicians Medical Group. To help patients better manage and treat various conditions, Dr. Hanid Audish often looked into clinical trials, thus prompting his eventual move into the field full-time. Now, as principal investigator, he is responsible for overseeing clinical trials related to conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.
Licensed in basic and advanced cardiac life support, Dr. Audish completed his medical studies at Western University of Health Sciences (WUHS), followed by his postdoctoral training at Downey Regional Medical Center. Dedicated to staying current with the changes in the medical field, he routinely earns continuing medical education (CME) credits. He has maintained membership at the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, and American Osteopathic Association for more than a decade, and served as a clinical facilitator at WUHS/COMP for one year during his medical postdoctoral training.
