Medical Writing Teaching


Teaching manuscript writing in Africa

I’m glad to have the opportunity to contribute to this new regular feature in MEW – ’Teaching medical writing’. Why write about teaching in Africa? Well, Claire Gudex – who will manage the section – thought my experience with teaching in Zimbabwe and Tanzania could be of interest to our readers, and I hope (think) she’s right.
