Medical Writing Practices: An Inquiry into Writing Standards and Career Development Opportunities in Healthcare Communication
Student Research Paper
Dr. Tara Moore
The medical writing field is a growing industry with robust opportunities for writing students. Being a niche yet important area of science, medical writing is often overlooked as an area of study at the undergraduate level. In order to provide this opportunity for interested students, as well as diversify the course curriculum at Elizabethtown College, a study was conducted into the medical writing field. The focus of this project is to research the local medical writing industry, along with graduate programs in the field, to better determine how an undergraduate 200-level medical writing course could be incorporated at Elizabethtown College. Information was collected through student research and alumni interviews. To structure the course, content was created and completed through a student lens in the form of literature review, video appeals analysis, and medical-related essay material. The results of the study showed that a medical writing course could greatly enhance the learning experience at Elizabethtown College and better prepare students for graduate programs and internship opportunities.
