How to Participate in Paid Clinical Trials for Money

Clinical trials are research studies to evaluate whether new treatments/drugs/devices are safe and effective for humans. By participating paid clinical trials, patients receive free medical treatment that is new or improved, and usually are compensated for their participation of the clinical study.

There are some healthy people (such as college students) participate in paid clinical trials just for money, but if you are suffering from a disease, and your current treatment isn’t effective or a good treatment does not even exist, you may want to volunteer to participate in a clinical trial. It’s a good way to contribute to the discovery of a new treatment that may relieve or eliminate your illness, and at the same time you may receive compensation and make extra money!
