For as long as people have been reading about health and medicine, there have been medical writers writing about it.
Medical writers communicate important knowledge about diseases and treatments to a variety of stakeholder audiences ranging from healthcare professionals and regulatory authorities to sales representatives, payers, patients and caregivers, and more. Medical writers clarify the complex, make scientific information accessible for the intended audiences, and empower people across the spectrum of healthcare to make informed decisions. Before you can even begin thinking about a career in medical writing, you need to know
