Individual training for aspiring Medical Writers

Azur Health Science is all about people. We care as much about training and equipping the next generation of medical writers as we care about the patients for whom we write.

For this reason, we offer an individual training scheme for people who are looking to break into the field.

We know that the competition is tough and that contact and experience in the industry are priceless when getting to the interview, convincing potential employers and signing that first contract.

Possessing a combined 20 years’ experience in regulatory Medical Writing and being active members of the European Medical Writers Association, we are ideally placed to guide you into this challenging but rewarding field.
