You totally should. Here are some things to think about before you do.
How do you become a medical writer?
There aren’t any specific courses or qualifications you need to do to become a medical writer. You just need to be able to write, have a medical or scientific background and a desire to spend hours staring at a screen, rather than down a microscope.
However, I would definitely recommend doing some kind of professional writing course. I did a Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing at TAFE. I thought I could write pretty well before I started it, but what the course first taught me was that actually, no, I couldn’t. Professional, technical writing is a skill like any other that can be practised and developed. Believe me when I tell you that you have to be taught it. You might also find it helpful to learn or refresh your grammar and punctuation skills. More...
