Tips for Finding Clinical Trials


One of the toughest and most-time consuming parts for medical research staff conducting the clinical trials is actually finding volunteers willing to participate. Research staff are looking for you! There are numerous ways to identify clinical trials looking for healthy human volunteers.


Trials are actively conducted by hospitals, universities, foundations, and contract research organizations (CROs, firms that conduct studies for big pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies). According to CISCRP, nearly 40% of these clinical trials can be learned about through media such as tv, radio, or printed ads. While finding studies through tv and radio ads might be difficult, you can actively scour the wanted section of your local newspapers to find trials.

Most local research clinics run ads for volunteers in the local newspaper, employment papers, on TV, and on the radio. They also post ads on Craigslist and on their own websites. Call them up as soon as you see something of interest. If the study is no longer recruiting volunteers, they might enter you in there database for future study participation.


Look up local research clinics in your phone book and ask (a) if they have any studies openly recruiting healthy volunteers and (b) if you could be entered into their volunteer database.

College campuses and major universities with research hospitals are also great places to find clinical trial. Schools of medicine, dentistry, and nursing, along with departments of psychology, sociology, and communications, at local universities, are always looking for willing volunteers for their experiments. Perform an internet search for the hospitals, schools, and departments on nearby campuses, then look for any section concerning clinical trials or research volunteers.

When searching for clinical trials on our website you will click on a Clinical Trial Information sheet like this example. Find Paid Clinical Trials Example Information Sheet. The first thing you should do is to see if the clinical trial is right for you. You can do this by quickly scanning the headings of the information sheet. These headings are highlighted on the left by blue icons as follows:

  >> Status of the Clinical Trial (This will appear at the top in red or green)

Purpose - This will briefly let you know about the clinical trial and how it is conducted.

Eligibility - This tells you age, gender and health status information. If you do not meet these eligibility requirement you should move to another clinical trial.

Contacts and Locations - This will list the locations the clinical trial is being conducted and it will usually list the contact person to call. Note - Even if your location is not listed you should call the clinical trial investigator. Sometimes their locations have not been updated or they are willing to pay time and travel expenses.

More Information - This will often give alternative contact people and other pertinent information about the trial.

These headings appear on the left side of the information sheet and are fairly self explanatory. Doing this will help you to quickly evaluate if the clinical trial is right for you.
