Teaching Medical Writing


The training of medical writers is not to be taken lightly and requires serious input from industry, established medical writers, and the academics making the transition. Following on from previous articles in Medical Writing, Sarah and Adrian Tilly use their experiences of providing a mentoring programme for people wishing to transition into regulatory medical writing to provide advice for both mentor and mentee alike.
