Medical devices should certainly be included on any list of trends in medical writing. That impression was only reinforced by the strong interest in device writing evident at this year’s EMWA spring conference. The three medical device workshops on offer were fully booked and the expert seminar series was wellreceived. On a personal note, I was thrilled to see the growing opportunities for medical device writing at EMWA. Starting out as a medical writer in 2004 the job fascinated me, but I had my doubts about whether it was a good fit for someone with an engineering and orthopaedic research background. Writing for pharma was clearly the training focus at my first EMWA conference back then, but in 2019, I am happy to say I have found my perfect medical writing niche!
