Health & medical writing is a growing field
With more and more writers looking to specialise in a niche, the health & medical writing field continues to increase in popularity.
And for good reason. The work is rewarding – you’re helping people improve their health, adhere to their treatments, and change behaviours.
The clients and job opportunities are as fascinating as they are diverse. You could be writing about heart health one day and paediatrics the next. You could write anything and everything from healthy lifestyle advice to a systematic review, patient information, or be engaged to edit a book.
There is plenty of work available. And, most importantly, it pays well!
Why take a Health Writer Hub course?
Taking a course to improve your health and medical writing skills is important for any writer wanting to specialise.
Writing about medicine takes specific expertise, and it’s not something that general writers can do easily.
Knowing how to write about medicine accurately without overpromising yet still making content appealing and interesting takes a lot of practice.
Those writing for consumers also need to know how to write about complex topics clearly.
If you’re writing for the web, or marketing health products, it’s also important to be aware of regulations, content strategy, social media, how people read online content, SEO and keyword research, and more.
Employers like writers to have relevant experience, so they can trust the work they’re getting is high quality, credible and reliable.
Courses improve your skills so you know that, regardless of whether you’re freelancing or looking for employed work, you’re providing high-quality health & medical writing.
