    MedComms Networking - 15 January 2019


    First many thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our annual #MedComms careers event in Oxford (speaker slides now freely available). Here are just a couple of comments that came back from the wannabes...

    "I attended the MedComms event in Oxford today. It was such a great opportunity to be able to speak to the different agencies and discover the amazing jobs that are out there for people like myself who are looking at starting a career in medcomms."

    "I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the careers event yesterday. It was the most useful networking event I've attended in a long time. I spoke to a lot of people and it made me understand medcomms even more."

    Several of the regular agency representatives commented that there was more interest than usual in account management opportunities. Maybe a result of launching our new careers guide last year, The business of medical communications: a guide to getting started in account management? Who knows for sure - I just try to make as much noise as possible all the time - but we've certainly had lots of positive feedback about that guide and, all being well, the new edition will be published very shortly. Watch this space.

    Next we need to update the associated guide, From academic to medical writer: a guide to getting started in medical communications, which is published in March each year. Shout if you'd like your agency to feature in that.

    Our next formal careers event is the annual Meet the Agencies Day on 13 May and applications are now welcomed. Because of the format, the number of places is strictly limited to just 24 delegates but it's a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with six leading MedComms agencies and many previous attendees now work in MedComms. Please help spread the word.

    On a less formal basis, our next Zoom webinar for the wannabes will be at midday UK time this coming Thursday, 17 January, when the guys from inScience Communications (part of the Springer Nature group) will talk about their company, what MedComms means for them and the different roles within their teams. They will explain their approach to recruitment and answer questions from the audience.

    I'm close to confirming at least a couple more of these webinars and I'm keen to do many more, so shout if you'd like to join in.

    By the way, The International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) invites you all to attend their special 90-minute ISMPP U educational webinar, Open Access and Medical Publishing, on Wednesday, 30 January. It's open to everyone, regardless of ISMPP membership! Expert speakers representing different stakeholder views - industry, funder, publisher, patient, and academia - will discuss various considerations around open access publishing.

    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.
