Why freelance medical writing is REWARDING

Freelance medical writing as an alternative career for healthcare professionals is REWARDING.

🧠But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

To truly excel at being a freelance medical writer, you need to understand the fundamentals of what it takes to work as a freelancer.

Most of us who transition from clinical work to being a freelancer are jumping into a world unbeknownst to us.

We’re used to working with the comforts of having an accountancy team sorting out our finances, we know the hours we work (ish, lol), and we know how much we’re going to get paid at the end of the day.

Being a freelancer is different.
✅You need to find work CONSTANTLY.
✅You need to be ON TOP OF YOUR FINANCES.
✅You need to regularly update your PERSONAL BRAND.
✅You need to know how to FIND CLIENTS.
✅You need to wear MULTIPLE HATS. (You aren’t just a medical writer. You’ll need to understand marketing, SEO, medical terminology, empthy, the list goes on).
✅Most importantly, you need to understand that it TAKES TIME.

The good news is, you don’t have to go through the journey alone. There are thousands of you out there trying to break through the clinical face-to-face bubble, but have no idea where to start.

👋And that’s where we come in.

We’ve created a community and a course for healthcare professionals who want to work on their personal brand as medical writers so that they can escape the 4 walls of a clinical setting.

If you’re a healthcare professional that is wanting to find an alternative career, or even an alternative means of securing an income that goes beyond locuming, then we could be your gateway.
