At Providence Clinical Research, patients volunteer in clinical trials and help to develop the medications of tomorrow. Our physicians carefully monitor our patients' health while they test these medications for drug manufacturers and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Patients who enroll in a clinical trial typically receive these experimental treatments and come in to our site for regular check-ups with our team of friendly doctors. The data recorded at these check-ups is then sent to the FDA, who may approve or reject the medicine for public release.

If you have any of the following illnesses,

  • Type II Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Flu
  • Hypertension
  • Psoriasis / Skin rashes
  • Back pain
  • Asthma / COPD
  • Kidney disease
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Infections
  • Other

you may qualify to enroll in a study
and get treated!


It costs you nothing to participate in a study.

In fact, if you qualify, you may be compensated with cash for the cost of commuting to our site and for the valuable time you give us in check-up! 

If you have an illness and want relief, call us at (747) 477-5177 to schedule a free screening.

When you call, our recruiter will ask you some questions to determine what studies you may qualify for, and they will schedule you at your earliest convenience. At the screening visit, we will perform some tests to find out whether or not you qualify, and if you do, you will be compensated for your time.

You can also submit your information online!
