Medical writing in Finland


Finland has a flourishing pharmaceutical and life science industry and research scene. Medical writing, however, is an unfamiliar term to many Finns and there is no Finnish equivalent for the title ‘medical writer’. Those people who do medical writing in Finland, but are by job description something else, may be members of other associations or unions and may not even be aware that what they do is actually called medical writing. Finnish medical writers do not have an association of their own, so EMWA could serve as a forum for bringing medical writers in Finland together with each other and with medical writers in other countries.
