Medical Writer as a Career


“During recent years medical writing career option has become extremely popular among content writers because of the luring compensation package that comes with it.”


Medical writers’ job no doubt, is one of the most well-paid of all writing jobs but it also demands a lot of specific skills from the professional writer. If you are someone who understands medical concepts, terms and abbreviations, and can create regulatory and research-related documents or for healthcare websites and magazines, then this is an ideal job for you.

As a medical writer you will not only find employment in pharmaceutical companies but you can also write for healthcare journals, online healthcare portals, hospitals, newspapers, etc.  All of these, including research papers and journals, need extensive medical and scientific writing support, and without competent medical writers they will be handicapped.

Eligibility Criteria

Ideally, people who have bachelors or masters degree in any life science-related field come into this field as they are well acquainted with medical terminology and are more likely to be a success as medical writers. But many professionals who have a bachelors or masters degree in the English language along with basic knowledge and understanding of human anatomy, disease pathology and medical terminology, are doing a wonderful job as medical writers.

There is no mandatory criterion fixed for medical writers so if you have good language command and you can understand life sciences, then a little coaching will help you to become a competent medical writer.
