    Every Tuesday we send out the MedComms Networking email newsletter to subscribers. It includes brief commentary on what we're doing and planning, and highlights relevant news to encourage sharing of information, experiences and ideas and to stimulate discussion. The text and links included below, by definition, were accurate on the day of publication, but may then become outdated.

    MedComms Networking - 04 December 2018


    This week's priority for me is to finalise bookings for our next edition (to be published in January) of our annual careers guide for wannabe MedComms account managers, The business of medical communications: a guide to getting started in account management, authored by Lindsey Heer. Give me a shout ASAP if you want to be included as I've nearly filled the available directory space. We'll then be working on the guide for wannabe medical writers, which will be published in March as usual, so I'm keen to hear from agencies that would like to be included in that as soon as possible. Current copies of all our careers guides are always freely available at

    Here's a couple of the brief testimonials I was sent last week to share with you.

  • "Many of my students have downloaded the FirstMedCommsJob careers guides and appreciated the clear description of the variety of job roles across the sector." From Jenny Mullins-White, Careers Consultant at University of Birmingham.

  • "I've found lots of the resources on your FirstMedCommsJob site extremely useful. I came across the careers guides while searching for possible industries to move into after my PhD, and the testimonials from people who had made the switch were really informative. They helped me decide that I want to start a career in medical communications. Since then I've been referring back to the careers guides so I can ask the right questions when speaking with agencies, in order to find a role that will be a good fit for me." From Poppy Sharp, PhD candidate and MedComms job seeker.

  • If you're looking for entry level staff do give me a shout at any time. We can do lots to help via the various FirstMedCommsJob services, even if it's just posting relevant articles to help spread the word about your own activities. For instance, we've just posted Reflecting on the Nucleus Global Academy by Manoshi Nath who's recently been through the Nucleus Global Academy, and is now working as an Associate Medical Writer at Articulate Science. Nucleus are now accepting applications for their 2019 programme.

    Meanwhile, just an hour ago we finished recording three more Writing Bites. These feature John Dixon, independent medical writer and trainer in scientific writing skills, and provide useful free tips for medical writers in MedComms (and others!). The complete series of "Writing bites" is growing on and on our MedComms Channel on YouTube. Lots more coming next year! Feedback welcome.

    Our latest tips...

  • Write good paragraphs [1.07 minutes]

  • Think before you use an adverb [1.50 minutes]

  • Write good paragraphs [1.07 minutes]

  • Enjoy your week. Remember, details of our activities are kept bang up-to-date at or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.

    P.S. here's details of an interesting looking webinar later this week, on 6 December, from pharmaphorum; Metrics to meaning: demonstrating the value of medical communications. features Lynda Chang and David Pearce of Complete HealthVizion. Everyone welcome. "See you" there.
