MICHR Participant Recruitment Program


The MICHR Participant Recruitment Program provides expertise, tools, and resources to facilitate participant recruitment in clinical and health research studies. We are committed to connecting research faculty, staff, community partners, and interested research participants to ensure successful research outcomes. Our aim is to assist study teams to be proactive and think upstream about their recruitment and retention needs, and to educate the community on research opportunities at the University of Michigan.


MICHR Participant Recruitment Program
Services include umhealthresearch.org, social media recruitment, recruitment material creation and assistance, recruitment and retention consultation (study teams may request a consultation, ideally at the time of proposal development, to discuss diverse recruitment and retention strategies, estimated timelines and budgets, and letters of support for grant applications), and outreach. Community Engagement is another service in which program staff work in collaboration with the community to facilitate participation of underrepresented populations in research, reduce potential barriers to participation, increase public trust, and ensure that research opportunities are accessible to all interested individuals. Please contact us at 877.536.4243 for additional information on community outreach events.
