❖ Because WI provides a wide range of medical writing services, interns will have the opportunity to participate in regulatory writing and review, slide deck preparation, abstract and manuscript preparation, etc. Interns will learn to work with FDA/ICH guidance documents, AMA style, and individual client style guides.
❖ An intern will be assigned a specific WI employee as a mentor for coaching and feedback. Interns will also have the opportunity to work with other WI employees, as determined by the intern’s interest, project volume, and project availability.
❖ Initially, all intern work will be supervised and reviewed before it is submitted to the client and all client interactions will be coached. Over time, interns may be given their own assignments and opportunities to interact directly with client companies.
❖ The internship program includes regular educational sessions either in person or via WebEx. These sessions provide an overview of specific documents and their styles, concepts that pertain to ethical and thoughtful medical writing, understanding regulatory guidance documents, and client management/communications issues and best practices.
