Q: Where do you fit in at Medicalwriters.com?
We have three integrated departments: Creative Services, Scientific Services, and Client Services. I work across Client Services and Scientific Services. Creative Services makes beautiful illustrations and animations to visualize complex scientific information. Scientific Services consists of PhD-trained medical writers who focus on content development. Client Services is responsible for client communications, strategic planning, commercial activities, and project management.
Q: How is Medicalwriters.com different from other places you’ve worked?
It’s very much the ethos that you make your own destiny here, and you take that out-of-the-box thinking into projects with you. We are encouraged and empowered to come up with exciting solutions, no matter who we are on the project team.
Q: What’s a typical career path in your role?
I’d turn that around and say, “Where do you want to go? What do you want to do?” The beauty of Medicalwriters.com is that what you want to do goes a long way toward determining your role. We are a company with two offices, one in Zurich and one in New York. If you’re energetic and show you’re motivated, there’s room to grow. Because our structure is fairly flat, we think of growth as professional development and skillset building rather than climbing the ladder.
