Unless special procedures are required, everything is done in one visit including the reading of informed consent, lab work and physical.  Be sure to pay attention during the consent reading as many doctors will quiz you and can bar you from the study if they feel you don't fully understand what your getting yourself into. 

WCT is very strict with "no shows" and cancellations. 

If you make an appointment with this clinic, make sure you arrive early as they will not serve you if you are late. 

Also, make sure you call to cancel if you know you will not make it.

Limited On-site.  Check with study staff for where to park.  You will get a parking permit to put on your dash at screening.



Food is catered in by multiple local restaurants.  Limited menu since most studies are short. 





Worldwide uses payment cards.  You'll receive one at the end of the last study visit preloaded with the first payment.  The remainder (bonus) will be loaded a few days later.  Keep the card as you can use it again for future studies at Worldwide.


 If you are a backup who does not stay the first night, you get $25 and a Priority card.  If you are a backup and stay the night and are not used for dosing, then you will get $75 and a Priority Card.  Priority Cards allow you to get into a study as long as your labs are in range. 


This is not guaranteed!  This is just the way it's been so far but the polices can always change.

You may now bring a camera phone or laptop with webcam.  Staff will apply tamper evident tape over the cameras.  If you tamper with the tape, you will be fined and may not be allowed to participate in future studies.

Courtesy phones for local calls available for use


Additional Information:

Studies are updated on the website as they arrive, so be sure to check often. 

This clinic mostly does bio-equivalency studies which means multiple stays with out-patients.  However, there are longer studies with single stays.   


I have done a few studies at this location.  Screening process is fairly fast depending on staffing levels.  Dorms are sparse.  Worldwide is very strict on their no show and cancellation policies.  You may not cancel a screening pretty much for any reason.  They have updated there policies and are a little more lenient.  Check the rules during your screening.
