    Many thanks to all the Sponsors of MedComms Networking


    The event was a great success - some 70 post-docs and final year DPhil students from the biomedical sciences departments within Oxford Universty met with some 25 medical writing and communications professionals for a highly engaging session which presented medical writing as an attractive career option. We hope to repeat the event at other locations in the near future.

    We explained how areas of the UK such as Oxfordshire, London and Cheshire are home to numerous leading medical communications agencies that serve the global pharmaceutical industry... and they’re crying out for good medical writers!

    These agencies are looking for individuals with:

  • a doctorate in a bioscience subject, ideally post-doctoral research experience
  • a genuine enthusiasm for science and its application to the world of medicine
  • a flair for writing about science and medicine
  • the ability to work independently within a small-team environment.
