Where are the MD-trained Medical Writers? Part I
I recently had a discussion with a VP of a reputable medical agency about the educational demographics of medical writers he works with, both internally and externally. He explained that about 75% of them had earned PhDs, a very high percentage. I asked him about doctors who had earned MDs or PharmDs. He explained that, although he occasionally works with PharmDs to write medical content, he rarely works with MDs in this context.
