What is medical communications?
Medical communications is a sector within life sciences that works cross-functionally with regulatory affairs, clinical operations and medical affairs teams to produce educational materials about drugs and devices for healthcare professionals and patients.
What do medical communication jobs involve?
Typically, medical communications individuals put together documentation such as labels, leaflets and presentations that help to educate patients and medical professionals on the company’s product. Medical writing within medical communications is slightly different than regulatory medical writers, who are scientific experts that work with regulatory documents for clinical trials.
Medical communications jobs will typically require a background in life sciences, usually a degree or master’s. Some employers may require a PhD qualification for regulatory writing roles.
