Job Title Job Family Job Cluster
Medical, Science, and Technical Writer Health Information and Communications - Data Focused Healthcare
 
Description    
Medical, science, and technical writers are involved in many communication activities, including presenting health information to the public in informative and interesting styles and making professional, scientific, and technical information available to health specialists. They may write for newspapers, magazines, radio, television, public relations publications, professional periodicals, or the Internet. Technical writers deal with the same subject matter as science writers, but while technical writers draw an audience of health care professionals, science writers translate technical information into language that lay people can understand. Medical writers and editors are trained as journalists who write or edit health-related books, articles, and brochures on a freelance basis or as part of a professional staff.
