Medical writing: uncovered
Last week, at a seminar by the CEO of a medical communications company, I finally discovered what medical writing really is! Although I have spent a significant chunk of my academic career dedicated to writing, I hadn’t considered the possibility that this might lead to a job in itself. When I heard the words ‘medical writing,’ I imagined an ‘ex’-scientist or MD, chained to a desk all day, typing away in isolation. Apparently, there is nothing further from the truth!
