Recruitment Unit


Our recruitment unit, in conjunction with UTHSC marketing and communication, handles all the publicity, public contact, and telephone screening necessary to select participants for ongoing studies. This unit, located at our Medical Center site, has a recruitment coordinator and recruitment technicians. We schedule our staff to work days, evenings, and weekends to ensure that we have an adequate number of screeners for all recruitment strategies.

Our recruiting unit has expertise in many recruitment strategies, including:

  • Direct mail (we can produce up to 34,000 pieces of mail per week on the department's direct-mail printer)
  • General mass mail (we send out approximately one million pieces of mail per year for recruitment purposes)
  • Health fairs
  • Group presentations
  • Newspaper inserts, posters
  • Media ads and articles
  • Radio/television commercials
  • Public service announcements
