True to the mandate of the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, the Clinical Research Division (CRD), serves to link the institute to the patients and other stakeholders in need of its clinical expertise, diagnostic facilities and research capabilities. Driven by its three main thrusts, namely, research, training, and service, the division aims to improve health outcomes among Filipinos afflicted with infectious, tropical and dermatological diseases.

RITM, through CRD, provides inpatient hospital services and outpatient clinical services including HIV Clinic, TB DOTS Clinic, Animal Bite Clinic, and General Infectious Disease Outpatient Clinic.

With the threat of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, the institute has gathered a much deserved attention having been designated as a referral center for the management and isolation of these novel diseases of interest not only to the medical community, but to the general public.
