Medcomms experience

Medical communications positions – senior account executive

Medical communications positions – senior account executive

I gained my first experience of working within medical communications as an account executive. As part of this role I worked on a variety of accounts on a number of therapy areas including heart disease, arthritis, psychiatry, continence, erectile dysfunction and other long-term conditions. I greatly enjoyed the challenge of getting to grips with new subjects. In addition to this I worked on several accounts that were not restricted a particular therapy area such as workload management for the NHS and a PR campaign.

Medical communications positions – senior medical writer

I was the lead medical writer and client contact for a major global oncology account giving me an in-depth insight into one drug’s journey from preclinical and Phase I studies through to Phase III clinical trials. As I was a well-established member of the client’s multidisciplinary team, I was able to provide stability to the project during several client team changes. Key elements of the role included: medical writing and editing; project management; client interaction; investigator liaison.
