Yes, and to "participate" in the performance of this number of studies, to what 
extent does their "participation" constitute a patient eligible to be recorded as 
performed on their educational log?  If you visit enough clinical sites you will 
see that this criteria varries widely, and you may be surprised at what 
"constitutes" a patient logged in the students file.
