This one-day workshop is designed for those who intend applying to work as a medical writer for a MedComms (medical communications) agency. Led by John Dixon, Trainer in scientific writing and presentation skills, this is a FirstMedCommsJob.com initiative.

The programme is split into 10 topics, encouraging you to be: prepared, clear, readable, coherent, concise, relevant, accurate, visually aware, correct and consistent. We will use examples and short exercises to illustrate important points. Over lunch, a recruitment consultant from Media Contacts will join the group to pass on tips about writing your CV.
