I'm wondering, do clinical trials tend to slow down during the holiday season? November and December will be here before we know it. I'm just thinking they might b/c it might be harder to find volunteers and what not.
Also...are clinical trials at all seasonal, just in general? Are there seasons or months that tend to be busier or slower?

Generally they don't like to keep people in house for thanksgiving and Christmas/new years as they don't want to be there as well. But sometime they do...I know celerion pays more if you are in house during certain holidays. Generally its not seasonal, and for the most part recession proof as trials are in the "pipeline" for a long time. you might find some places (especially at college towns) more compeative during winter or summer break...though a lot of lab rats like to "take the summer off" or concentrate their longer studies during the winter.
Generally speaking try to make your money before Thanksgiving. Consider yourself fortunate to get studies between then and Valentine's Day. ****'s always available but you'll probably catch a bad cold stressing out between these times, with all the holiday travel, weather bs, and there is a noticeable slowdown because regular STAFF take their two weeks during this time! Spring and Summer tend to have more studies. It's always a crap shoot anyways. P.S. Valentine's Day, NOT New Years is a ***** with price gouging and availability of rooms at hotels.
