Hello Vandana,

Interesting career choice.

But before I answer your query, I wish you had supported me by mentioning your qualification as such.

Since your question is posted in the Media section, most probably you are or are seeking to pursue career as a Journalist and that too in the medical field.

Please note there is a major difference between being a Medical Writer and a Medical Journalist.

A medical writer is mainly from the Pharmacy background or from the Science background with knowledge about medicine and its components. They are the ones who write in details about the medicines right from its composition to its good and bad effects on humans. This description is then published in medical magazines and is forwarded to doctors by Medical representatives, who then recommend it to their patients accordingly.

Whereas, a Medical Journalist, is like a medical reporter, who interviews a medical professional or a pharmacist or a doctor and writes his or her view on certain illness and its cure.

Hope the difference is clear.

Read more on the differences online. If possible, meet professionals working in these sectors and get your doubts cleared.

As far as scope for Medical writers are concerned, a professional with science or pharma background, good knowledge about medicines, willingness to learn and good writing and communication skills, can achieve success in this field soon. Also now a days, Medical writers are given opportunity to freelance or work from home too.

Wish you good luck...
