I have been running the Medical Writing Institute since January 2009, and have been teaching medical writing and health and science communication skills since January 2004. I have worked with students who just needed a little polish on their resumes and those who really should not be focused on a career as a medical writer. Every one of my students, sooner or later, has been or is, employed.
The Medical Writing Institute does not work with recruiters, but am very happy to forward job requirements to students. We do not “sell” our students, certainly do not solicit or accept any fee for forwarding jobs. That would be highly unethical, and completely at odds with why the Medical Writing Institute was started.
I do my best to “fill the gaps” in a student’s resume: giving training in regulatory documentation connected with clinical trials and NDAs (new drug applications) and with preclinical requirements for INDs (investigational new drugs). If you are looking for a job in a pharmaceutical company and you did not know what IND and NDA stand for, you need training.
If you are looking for a job in a pharmaceutical company and you did not know what IND and NDA stand for (see the previous paragraph), you need training. By the time you have completed training at the Medical Writing Institute, if you are seeking a pharmaceutical company job, you will have prepared a clinical study report and know all that is involved in preparing it.
By the time you have completed training at the Medical Writing Institute, if you are seeking a pharmaceutical company job that requires you to prepare regulatory documents, you will have prepared the outline of a clinical study report, have studied several others, and know all that is involved in preparing documents for and from clinical trials.
