    MedComms Networking - 15 September 2020


    First, a big shout-out to Kerry Walker and her team at Insight Medical Writing for once again supporting the new edition of our unique annual careers guide, A writer's role in drug development: a guide to getting started in regulatory medical writing. Authored by Debbie Brix Reynolds, we hope it continues to be useful to the many people who ask "how do I become a medical writer" but then aren't sure how to respond when I ask, "MedComms medical writer or regulatory medical writer?".

    If you think this guide might be useful to your own networks, then one easy way to help them is simply to like or share my announcement on LinkedIn. Or, even better, write your own. The more noise, the better. Please use hashtag #MedComms.

    Latest editions of all our careers guides, are freely available at That's five guides now, but shhh, don't tell anyone, we've another new one due next month. Six in 2020. I wonder what 2021 will hold...

    Insight Medical Writing focuses on regulatory medical writing, but they also do MedComms work, so are well positioned to compare and contrast. I'm delighted they'll join me for a free a #MedComms webinar on 14 October when we can explore those differences further and answer questions from the audience about their company, the regulatory medical writing services they provide and the different roles within their teams. We'll learn about what they look for in entry-level staff, what training is provided and the career prospects. Please pass on word to anyone you know who wants to learn more about working in medical writing.

    Remember the new series of weekly #MedComms webinars starts on 30 September with another FirstMedCommsJob: Meet the agencies panel session. This time we'll be joined by Jane Smith (AMICULUM), Rebecca Douglas (Ashfield Healthcare Communications), Karen Kent (Envision Pharma Group), Diane Sutherland (Fishawack Health), Claire Inness (Highfield) and Petula Coutinho (Oxford PharmaGenesis), who will answer questions from the audience. We'll look back on the experiences of recruitment during the pandemic and consider implications for the future. And we'll answer questions from the audience. Everyone's welcome.

    Whichever way you look at it, we're changing how we work. I'm sure it'll be a common theme throughout the upcoming webinars. There's lots of talk of more flexible working policies across the community, but the most extreme I've seen so far must be the Featured Job below, from Julia Walton at Media Contacts. I've no idea who it's with, but this HEOR Market Access Medical Writer in Oxfordshire offers "unlimited annual leave, no set hours of work..." Crikey!

    Give me a shout anytime if you'd like to post your own jobs, however flexible, in what is already the biggest specialist jobs board for MedComms, at It's very easy. We'd like to be bigger still.

    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.

    Stay safe and well, everyone.
