By Dr Debbie Brix Reynolds, 1st edition published September 2019

This guide aims to provide an insight into regulatory medical writing with a focus on drug development as opposed to medical devices, although writers work in both areas. It explores the roles and attributes of the writer, tips on winning your first regulatory writing role and help in deciding whether this would be the career for you, drawing comparisons with working in MedComms.

The 1st edition of this careers guide about regulatory medical writing is freely available here, published by Burntsky Ltd in September 2019, and it will now be updated every year.

Pubication of this careers guide has been supported by Insight Medical Writing.
