Phone Screen

The first step to participating in a clinical research study is to contact our call center at 1-866-429-3700. Our call center is open Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST (7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST). The phone screen agents need to make sure you will pre-qualify for a study and will ask you a lot of questions about your medical history including any medicines you take. Please be honest and thorough in your answers. This is for your own safety.
Most people in our industry are familiar with the “Leaky Funnel” analogy that describes the model where we approach a large number of patients for inclusion in a study, but they leak out of the pipe at every juncture. The loss of patients through planning, screening and execution of the study is not only costly, but it can also significantly delay or even prevent the successful execution of an otherwise valid study.


Once you pass the phone screen you will be scheduled for a screening appointment at the clinic. It is important to follow any fasting requirements before this appointment. Bring a current, valid, government ID with you and be on time. Not showing up for an appointment could hurt your chances of getting in a study later on. Please allow 2–4 hours for this appointment.

Getting Settled

Most of the time participants check into the clinic the day before the study begins. This is to help you get settled and comfortable. We will assign you to a room, give you a wrist band, and go over the rules of the clinic and anything particular to your study. The clinics are very much like a hospital floor. You will share a room with at least four other people of the same sex. You will have a secure place to store your belongings. We want you to be comfortable and at ease while you are at the clinic. When you are not having procedures done, you can read, watch TV, play games, join in activities like pool and Bingo, or use your laptop or phone if you’ve brought one. Each clinic has laundry facilities as well if you will be staying with us for a while.

Answering your frequently asked questions about paid medical trials

  • What is a clinical study?

    Before a drug can be prescribed, it must go through a long testing and approval process, including clinical studies.  A clinical study is used to test new drugs (medications) and develop new uses for existing drugs. At our research clinics, we work with some of the world’s leading companies on studies to answer questions like:

    • How is a drug absorbed into the body?
    • How does one drug react to another drug?
    • How is a drug affected by food?
  • Are the rumors about clinical trials true?

    There are plenty of misconceptions about what happens on a clinical research study. These are just that: myths. Your safety is our number one priority. Drug development is highly regulated with strict safety and ethical guidelines and we take those regulations very seriously.

  • Will I be paid for taking part in a research study?

    You will be paid for your time and participation in the study. Compensation is based on the length of the study, the number of overnight stays in our clinic, and the number of outpatient visits you attend.
