The Medical Writing module is designed to familiarize medical communications professionals with the preparation of written responses to specific drug information questions.
Feedback from Our Participant(s)
I have found these modules to be indispensable for any individual in the role of a Medical Communications Professional (MCP) in the pharmaceutical industry, whether they be new to this role or a more seasoned colleague. I recommend this program be incorporated into a Medical Communications training plan for all MCP team members, as it covers the foundation work processes of a MCP's role very nicely. As a seasoned MCP myself, the modules were very helpful to identify how we are currently practicing, and where improvements could be made based on following the industry's best practices as it relates to medical communications. Also of great value, the ability to earn ACPE credit as a pharmacist as well as the opportunity to receive a DIA Medical Communications Certificate upon completion of all 9 modules, really adds credence to embarking on this educational opportunity as a "no-brainer".
