Course Structure

We’ll teach you how to structure and write a piece of copy – anything and everything that you will be expected to produce, with a sprinkle of SEO.

We’ll go through the process of drug development, how medical writers are expected to write a regulatory piece of work, how to reference your work appropriately, and how to familiarise yourself with the rules of various regulatory boards.

We’ll build on getting your routine in check, help you set up your website, organise your portfolio, and set up your essential social media platforms.

We’ll talk you through how to build your portfolio from scratch, including how to set up a portfolio on your website, how to build a portfolio using an external platform if you do not have a website, and how to start accumulating content to add to your portfolio.

We’ll go through in detail the different ways in which a freelance medical writer can find a client, and how to pick the best out of a good bunch.

Not everyone wants to go freelance. As such, we’re going to describe to you in detail all aspects of full-time and part-time medical writing roles, where to find them, and how to get them.

Medical writing interviews are complex. They’re often a combination of the informal creativity associated with marketing roles, and the intricacies of medical excellence and attention to detail attributed to roles within the medical sector. Sounds hard, right? You won’t think so anymore after this module.

Writing tests are a relatively new concept for anyone who’s applying for a job. They each have their own set of marking criteria which must be met so that a candidate can be put forward for the role – a set of marking criteria that we are going to teach you and help you work towards.

Lastly, and most importantly, finance. Freelance medical writing may be tough at first, especially if you’re unable to secure enough clients to earn income sufficient to over your personal expenses. We’ll talk you through all things money when it comes to freelance medical writing, from knowing how to set your prices to sorting out your taxes. We’ve got you.
