Participation in Clinical Research Studies
Generally, clinical research studies require participants to spend time with others in our comfortable and attractive facility. Your time commitment may be as simple as a few hours to an overnight stay, a couple of weekends, or several days in a row.
Compensation for each program varies depending on several factors, such as:
- The number and length of stays or visits to our facility
- Any lifestyle restrictions
- The number, types and frequency of procedures involved
Stipends may range from $250 to $8,000 and average $250-$350 per day. Since we opened the doors of our clinical research organization in 1994, QPS has had an estimated payout of over $35 million to our Springfield, Missouri participants. We are proud to make a positive impact in the local community.
