As I expected when I released the online course Introduction to Regulatory Writing in the US last month, interest is high for this type of course. As the government tightens its regulations on the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, the need for medical writers in the regulatory environment is growing.
So, if you want to find a regulatory writing job, you must first get prepared. You must know how the drug approval process works and how to prepare regulatory documents. You may learn about this at an AMWA workshop, enrolling at one of USP programs, or at MedicalWritingTraining.com.
Then, you need to create a strong resume and a relevant portfolio for your job hunting. I regularly post medical writing job openings in this blog, but there is a Web site I just visited that posts regulatory writing jobs. The visual presentation is very nice and they have a long list of openings. Check it out here. Even if you're not ready yet to apply for one of those jobs, read through the job descriptions and see what skills and experience are required. That will give you an idea of what to work on so you can get the best job possible.
Thanks for reading!
