Study Volunteers

Volunteer for a clinical study

At TKL, we are always looking for individuals to take part in our clinical studies. The success of our studies are based on our volunteers who give their time to test the safety and effectiveness of various drugs and medical devices before they are released into the marketplace.

What you will do

As a volunteer in a specific study, your role is to follow all of the study-related directions. This provides the research team with invaluable information about the specific drug or device’s performance. As every trial is different, you will know ahead of time the length and requirements of that particular study.

No cost to you

There is never a cost to you to participate and health insurance is never needed. Fair monetary compensation for each study to cover your time and participation varies and will be discussed with you prior to your enrollment.

Medical exams

You may receive a complimentary medical exam if specified by a particular study.
