As a medical writer, you may be feeling the pinch of the economic downturn – fewer clients, fewer writing opportunities, and lower compensation. But wisdom says that downturns are a great time to prepare yourself for the next wave, and to broaden your skills so that you can ride more comfortably in any economic climate.

The field of continuing medical education (CME) has undergone a lot of changes in the ways in which CME is designed, developed, implemented, and evaluated. These changes have created a demand for CME medical writers who can deliver a new kind of medical education product.

These changes create a HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR WRITERS who want to break into lucrative CME medical writing, because everyone in the industry has to learn how to create CME that meets these new criteria.

If you would like to be part of the most creative, interesting, and lucrative areas in medical writing today,  and about new opportunities for medical writers in the CME industry, attend this 1-hour webinar!
