What Are Paid Medical Trials?

February 19, 2021 6:11 am


There are a number of companies that conduct and evaluate medical studies in order to find new treatments and procedures for medical conditions. These studies are generally done by various pharmaceutical companies, but they are also done by non-profit organizations, universities, hospitals and other medical research facilities. The companies conducting the studies pay participants or their volunteers for their participation in the study so that the results of the studies can be published and shown to the public for further consideration.

Generally, the study itself will require an outlay of some sort, whether financial or time-based. This is where your participation in a paid medical trial comes into play. You will either be required to take part in a telephone interview or you will be asked to participate in a webinar, mail in your information or attend a series of appointments. Once you complete any of these tasks, you will typically have the option to receive a copy of the findings from your clinical trial.

The length of the studies vary widely depending on the specific pharmaceutical company conducting them and the particular health condition being tested. Some clinical trials can last as little as a month, while others may last up to three years. In between these extremes are shorter trials lasting less than a year. All in all, the majority of trials will last between one and three years.
