    MedComms Networking - 05 November 2019


    First a big shout out for Steve Doyle, of Linking Business, a specialist trainer in the use of LinkedIn. Thanks, Steve, for leading another useful discussion at last week's MedComms webinar, How to connect with (almost) anyone in the MedComms world. Steve's background, working in and around medical communications and the pharmaceutical industry, makes him uniquely placed to provide advice about using LinkedIn effectively, whatever your current position and aspirations within MedComms. Too often, LinkedIn is simply seen as an online CV. It is so much more than that. Learn about how to use the biggest professional networking platform more effectively. Watch the free video now.

    If you missed Steve's previous webinar, 8 key tips to transform your MedComms Linkedin profile, then that's worth watching first.

    Tomorrow, we'll discuss Best Practice in Medical Education at our regular, UK, time of 12.00 midday. Please join us and please do help spread the word. Encourage all relevant others to join us. The more the merrier. I like to imagine that some of you at least gather together your colleagues, share some cake and use these opportunities to spark discussion within your own teams about how what you hear might be put to practical use in your own work.

    When 'medical education' is mentioned, many people think immediately of continuing medical education (CME), but the remit can be much broader, encompassing areas such as product-specific medical education and disease awareness activities. In this webinar, Leigh van Wyk, Tracey Wood and Phil Loder of Ogilvy Health will look at the latest thinking and best practice in medical education, covering topics such as pharma standards, needs assessments, principles of adult learning, and measurement of outcomes. Questions from the audience will be welcomed. It should be of interest to anyone working in and around MedComms and wanting to deliver real value through their educational activities. Please do join us.

    Then next week, we're still not quite sure exactly who'll be on the panel but we'll definitely be talking about Working in MedComms at McCann Health Medical Communications. This one should be particularly good for the wannabes. If you know anyone who wants to learn more about working in MedComms, please point them in this direction.

    By the way, on that note. Two important points.

    Firstly, details of our annual Careers event in January, hosted by Oxford University, has now been finalised and the first registrations have started arriving. Please help spread the word.

    Secondly, it's that time of year when I start working on the next year's annual careers guides. First up, The business of medical communications: a guide to getting started in account management, will be updated and published again in January. If you'd like to make sure your agency is included in 2020 then do get in touch soon, as space is limited.

    Remember, details of all 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.
