Screening:

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.

Hospital Beds

Bunk Beds

7 dorms with multiple bunk beds in each.  Limited electrical outlets.  You may wish to bring and extension cord and or power strip. 

Parking:

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:

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

Payment:

You will typically get most of your money after your last procedure visit, whether that be an in-house stay or out-patient and the rest in the mail two to three weeks later.  If you are a backup who does not stay the first night, you get $25 cash and a Priority card.  If you are a backup and stay the night and are not used for dosing, then you will get $75 cash 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.

Attire:

Color coded T-shirt issued for each study.

Bring your own bottoms and under/sweatshirt

Camera Policy:

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. 

Laundry:

Done on longer studies

Public Phones: 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.   

 

Worldwide is remodeling!  New computers, TV rooms and public spaces!

 

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.
