I am new to Phase 1 clinical trials so I am trying to learn as much as I can .
Location: Florida I mainly do: Healthy Studies # of studies I have done: 3 A little about me: I am just getting started in clinical trials . Became unemployed and was doing small outpatient studies until someone told me about Covance and it has ed up a new world of making money.
So I am trying to do more inpatient studies and am hoping to do even more next year.
a few from PRA --not the ones I would have wanted to see here
I never got the finger scan nor signed a form so, no, I do not think it is correct. also someone who screened with me this week said she did screenings and studies here just about weekly for over a year. Just don't say if they don't mention it. The transport is sketchy and not on the ball with one exception. If you have a delay they do get you screened, etc. They are sticklers about ine so if your study says none, and you test positive, you get dissed until they get in a pickle for participants a loooong time later. This is quite disorganized. I think Pf and SNBL are the more organized of those I went to. It can be quite lenient here but BTST this place has its issues. I would travel hours to Pharmaron first but this is a resort when nothing else is active and it's close enough if I need to make a quick financial gain.

It's probably one of the better run places out there in the mid- Atlantic area. I do keep them on my regular call rotation. If you see soing you really want to get into, keep calling. I messed up by leaving messages insteaed of speaking to someone directly and missed out on the $11K. In hindsight that study would be like 5 months so I would rather not have to wait another month after that to be study-eligible again per VCT. Once I went and they knew I did a fructose study so I went all the way there to be dq'd. I told them the recruiter was informed. I also made them pay me the full $125 screening since my travel expense from NJ was high (last-minute Amtrak).
I'm curious about what it's like there to screen and in house-if the people are actually professional in attitude, phlebotomy skills, if the food is decent, and what the facility is like. There would be significant travel expense for me and I'm not interested in dealing with any more expensive trips that don't result in disclosure/ reasonable questions answered and walking away because those basics are not provided.
i have screened there at pharmaron and been an alternate there. it's several jumps up from parexel as far as professionalism. they just don't seem to have studies often. it's a little hard to get good info over the phone.
quick plug for the baltimore hostel as a place to stay if needed.
