MedComms event, mainly for PhDs and post-docs

After the success of our previous MedComms careers events over the last 6 years, I’m delighted to confirm we’re now planning dates for 2014. Note I keep the Starting Out web page at bang up-to-date so that is always the best reference point to point people at.

As always, these one day events are all free of charge to attend and everyone is welcome to join us.

They are primarily intended for post-docs and PhD students from academic biomedical sciences departments but we’ve plenty of space and anyone who is interested in learning more about MedComms is very welcome. Please do pass word on.

Oxford on 16 January 2014 – The event will be held at the Medical Sciences Teaching Sciences, Centre (MSTC), South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PL.

Hopefully we’ll shortly be able to confirm dates for similar events back in Manchester and London as well.

The events provide the opportunity to meet with a number of medical communications (MedComms) professionals for a highly engaging session which presents medical writing and account management in MedComms as an attractive career option.

Attendees are simply asked to please register in advance by emailing their name and current position to me and I will confirm their place by return.

We have a growing list of helpful resources including videos and an up-to-date careers guide to download, as well as details of all past and upcoming events, all freely available at
