How participating helps the medical field and your bank account.
Just like giving blood, clinical studies are a great meaningful way to make some extra money on the side. The pay can range anywhere between $50 to $1,000, depending on whether the trial is a onetime session, overnight stay or repeat visits. The more that is involved in the clinical trial, the more they pay.
To many people, being a human guinea pig doesn’t sound ideal. Yet, aside from the compensation, participating in a clinical study could help you get that long overdue physical exam that you have needed to get. Clinical trials require a complete examination that may include extensive blood work, EKG, and MRI.
If you have a current condition that is undergoing a study, it’s even more beneficial to volunteer. People with chronic ailments and illnesses have been able to recover and get better by participating in a study that has been causing them to suffer for years.
As you can imagine, there are many clinical studies. Everything from acne, to weight loss, depression, urine continence, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, the list goes on and on.
Don’t forget to do your research before participating in any clinical study. There are many out there to choose from. Ask as many questions possible and only do what you feel comfortable with. We have several recommendations for you below.

Aside from making that extra money, you may have the strong desire to help improve the medical field for future generations. Or maybe you have a family or friend that is suffering from a disease and want to help contribute to finding treatments and cures.
The need for clinical volunteers is at a high time growth. 99% of Alzheimer treatments that have tested successfully in animals have failed in humans. Bottom line, the medical field would not be able to evolve without humans volunteering for clinical studies.
