A few days ago, someone challenged me saying that medical writers can't earn six figures. Well, did I make that up?
Of course, not all medical writers will make such money. Salaries are always tied to experience, education, type of employer, etc. But at the high-end, many medical writers are earning six figures. In fact, according to the 2007 AMWA Salary Survey, the mean gross income for the freelancers interviewed was $119,295. Click here to read more about the results of the survey.
You may also look at the ranges posted in ads for medical writing job: you'll see that the high-end of the ranges are above 100K. See this post about Medical Writer Salaries in USA.
The potential is there. You just have to work hard to get to that level.
