Top Reasons Why Healthy Volunteers Participate in Clinical Research

Posted by: I Support Research


Ready to start advancing science and potentially be reimbursed for your time? Clinical trials for healthy volunteers are a great way to do both. There are many reasons why healthy volunteers may want to participate in clinical research, such as:

  1. Contributing to scientific knowledge

Clinical research is a very important tool used by the scientific community to learn more about specific medical treatments and their effect on the body. It’s not only volunteers suffering from the ailment being tested that help advance scientific knowledge; healthy volunteers play a crucial part in understanding the treatment’s full effects.

  1. Reimbursement for your participation

Healthy volunteers may be compensated for their time spent participating in a clinical trial. Each trial has its own level of compensation set by the company sponsoring the research. There are many studies being conducted right now across the U.S.

  1. A break from your routine

When you participate in a clinical trial with DaVita Clinical Research, you will get the opportunity to take a break from your normal routine. The researchers strive to make the facilities comfortable and welcoming, with many amenities that may include pool tables, games, internet connectivity, and more. Why not spend some time away from home in a comfortable environment to catch up on reading or take in some movies on Netflix?
