Depending on their employer's needs, the medical writer may write for both medical professionals and potential patients/healthcare recipients. As such, it is important for the writer to be versatile and understand the various intended audiences for the work they produce. Much of the writer’s job involves conducting research; a clear understanding of the medical field and biological science is essential for this occupation. The medical writer may be required to perform interviews with medical staff and personnel as well. In certain situations, they may be asked to assist in writing copy for commercial purposes. Professionals in this position typically work in an office setting during regular business hours.
Since the medical writer will be dispensing written information from training details to best-practice procedure outlines to preventive health recommendations, a company may require that their medical writers already have some related experience in the field. A bachelor's degree in a relevant field is a typical requirement, although many companies will hire a writer with an unrelated degree (such as English or communications) with an educational background in biological or health sciences. Basic computer skills and excellent writing skills are also necessary for this position. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
