    MedComms Networking - 20 September 2016


    Where to start today?

    Last week's MedComms careers event in Manchester was, frankly, superb! Many thanks to the many - and there were, indeed, many - who participated. One of the delegates, Natasha Tracey aka @NatashaTracey has posted her summary of the event. The slides are freely available as always and I'm currently making a plan to get at least some of the presentations filmed to add to our growing library of webcasts at I thoroughly enjoy the fact that in the few days before every careers event now, registrants email me to say; "I'm dropping out... because I have a job. In MedComms!" The events are great on the days they happen but remember the growing information resource at is helping wannabes every single day. Let me know if you can contribute to that effort.

    Talking of the webcasts and - we've posted anther two films from this month's Brunch Club meeting about medical education. So the full set are now freely available as follows:

  • Effective education - if it's not planned from the start, the results won't magically appear featuring Celeste Kolanko of PCM Scientific and a member of the Good CME Practice group
  • Global medical education - commonalities and differences across the globe featuring Celeste Kolanko of PCM Scientific and a member of the Good CME Practice group
  • Independent medical education in Europe - who is calling the shots? Where next? featuring Eugene Pozniak of European CME Forum and of Siyemi Learning
  • European CME Forum - its role in the evolving CME landscape featuring Eugene Pozniak of European CME Forum and of Siyemi Learning

    If you think these videos are useful, please pass word on and tell me if you'd like to speak at a future event.

    Yesterday was another lively meeting of the Sponsors of MedComms Networking. If you meet a Sponsor today - please give them a hug! Remember, none of all this would be possible without them. And still, so much more is possible. We were joined by guests from Roche, exploring the challenges they face and how agencies and clients can work better together, and by Professor Joanna Verron from Manchester Metropolitan University talking about her new MSc in Science Communications which, uniquely, includes a full module focused on MedComms medical writing. This has been developed in collaboration with a number of individuals and agencies from within this community and the first students started this week. Adrian Brown also joined us to discuss the first Landscape Training event for new starters in MedComms that he's running in Oxford on 12 October.

    Now I just have to sort out arrangements for tomorrow's meeting of the Freelancers who subscribe to the MedComms Workbook service. These six-monthly meetings are always great fun. However, we've had a couple of Freelancers drop out this week, owing to workload, so if you want to join us ping me a message straight back today.

    Have a good week yourselves. Did you know it's Peer Review week? Enjoy.
