    MedComms Networking - 14 March 2017


    Congratulations Caroline Halford from Adis! More than 300 views for the free webcast we posted just last week: Use of social media (and digital features) to maximise the impact of your research. We've 39 more great webcasts, all free to anyone, anywhere, at or via the MedComms Youtube channel. This may be my favourite project, currently.

    We're building the collection by running our monthly Brunch Club meetings in Oxford. I'm keen to hear suggestions for topics or speakers. If you'd like to nominate yourself, please do. We've some great topics coming up including, just for example, on 5 April Chris Winchester talking about the AMWA-EMWA-ISMPP Joint Position Statement on the Role of Professional Medical Writers and on 3 May we'll hear about the services from ORCID, Altmetrics and EQUATOR and more. Dates and topics are all kept bang up-to-date at and listed below every week. Feel free to join us and take the opportunity to chat with the speakers.

    The webcasts, clearly, are intended to help you if you can't attend the Brunch Club meetings, or maybe any meetings if you're based too far away. But there's nothing to stop anyone arranging activities, anywhere. If you let me know I'll certainly do all I can to help you. This week we'll not only have our RightsLink Permissions Roundtable with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) on Wednesday in London but on Thursday with help from Phil O'Brien and his team at Concise there'll be another lunch and Learn event, this time in New York and on Friday Steven Walker and his team from Stgilesmedical are running another afternoon's meeting in Berlin.

    It's all just a taste of what is possible, though, so do join in wherever in the world you are and please help spread the word.

    My other favourite project, currently, is what we're doing with to provide support to the many who want to start their career in MedComms. We've posted another article this week, this time from Elliott Gray, an Intern at Porterhouse Medical, reflecting on his recent work experience. I'd welcome more contributions, please, and I'd really like to see more from outside the UK. I welcome anything that provides insight in to the day-to-day work of MedComms around the world. Importantly, the 2017 edition of our annual careers guide, From academic to medical writer, A guide to getting started in medical communications has just been finalised this morning so we'll have the new online version posted very shortly (watch this space).

    Meanwhile, please help spread the word about our next Careers event on 22 May. It's filling up nicely, with some excellent looking MedComms wannabes.

    Finally, here's my recommendation for some quiet contemplation. The art of story telling. It's the start of an online course (surely, no-one tells stories better than Pixar) and leads nicely to the fact we'll be talking about Scientific storytelling and audience engagement on 11 May in Richmond in London, hosted by AMICULUM. Please join us.
