Medical writers normally have a degree in a science or related subject and have excellent communications skills including the ability to adapt their writing style to different audiences. Medical writers often work closely with subject matter experts to ensure their writing is of the highest standard of technical accuracy, so being a team player is also essential.

The starting salary for a medical writer in the UK is usually in the low £20,000s and can increase to £60,000 for principal medical writers. Check out our Healthcare Communications Salary Report for 2018 for more details.

Medical Writer jobs salaries

Some medical writers choose to work freelance and provide medical writing services to healthcare business and agency clients. This is a great option for more experienced or established medical writers looking to maintain a different work/life balance, who have commitments at home which make it difficult to work full time or those that just want to be their own boss! Freelance medical writing jobs are often advertised in the same way as any other contract position, through recruitment agencies like Paramount.
