Teaching Medical Writing

Abstract

I teach medical writing at Copenhagen University, where I have successfully run the week-long Intensive Medical Writing Course for the last decade. Each time the course is held, there are three presenters, four tutors and 36 participants. In the first part of the programme on Monday afternoon, all participants attend three lectures: “Errors of grammar and usage”, “Optimal presentation of figures” and “Medical writing seen from an editor’s standpoint”. The participants are then split into two groups and attend either the Tuesday and Wednesday or Thursday and Friday full-day sessions. This second part of the programme deals with the IMRAD structure for scientific articles, how to write clearly and concisely, style and vocabulary, punctuation, presentation of numbers, the publication process and the cover letter.
