The main aim of medical writing, or a medical writer, is to consistently produce a high quality of written medical education. It also includes developing medical communications materials for the pharmaceutical industry and other educational bodies.
Medical writing with a Medical or Healthcare Communications agency is likely to involve analysing, researching, writing, editing and proof reading for a full range of medical education and communications materials. These medical materials need to consistently meet the project specification, budget and delivery schedule.
This medical writing material will be for a range of audiences, in a range of therapy areas, so the ability to adjust your writing style and correctly interpret client's briefs is essential. Spelling, grammar and eye for detail are of upmost importance in these roles combined with strong English skills, both written and spoken. The role also requires medical writers to maintain thorough up-to-date knowledge of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, research & development, industry guidelines, SOP's and laws to ensure adherence at all times.
