The Gold Star Communications Medical Writer Workshop will focus on demonstrating how to parlay the skills you already have for a job as a medical writer within a healthcare communications agency. During the workshop, participants will be provided with a framework on which to develop a portfolio that may be used for job interviews. Additionally, general preparedness insights will be shared (e.g. understanding how medical communications agencies are run, client management, insight on US-based companies, and more).
