Medical Journalism

Abstract

The majority of medical writers (either in the pharmaceutical industry, CROs, or as freelancers) provide documents for regulatory authorities. A smaller proportion works in the medical and health communication field writing texts for either specialised (e.g. medical doctors) or broader audiences (e.g. patients and other lay people).
