Introduction to Careers as a Medical Writer

A sampling of medical writing jobs for you to consider.

In this course, John begins with a description of medical writing as a career. He lists the pros and cons of pursuing such a career or part-time job.

He then describes the categories of medical writing from technical to educational to copywriting promotional materials.

The course includes interviews (audio only) that can be accessed directly or downloaded for playback at your leisure. The recordings include physicians who have chosen one of the major categories of writing to focus on, an editor who employs freelance writers, a coach who teaches physicians how to start their own freelance writing business, and more.

As with all of our courses, once you register, you have access to the course at your convenience and will benefit from future additions and enhancements to the course at no additional cost, forever!
