HI There,

The name itself talks about the difference between both the fields.

Clinical Research is a Research oriented field. Here the researcher, takes samples and experiments with them on animals followed by human trials. It is mostly done for development in terms of medicines in the market.

Now once the research is done, the benefits as well as disadvantages of the medicines have to be made known to Medical professionals, before any doctor recommends it to their patient.
Here steps in the Medical Transcriptor or Medical writer.

A medical writer is the one who would write a detailed summary of the medicine and submits these to the doctors through journals and other means of publications.

In order to pursue a career in Medical writing, one needs to be from the Science background, since they need to know the scientific terminologies used.
Online courses would be helpful only then.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.....

Dear Aspirant,

Medical transcription and clinical research are not same.

Yes you can do the medical transcription job along with other job. There are online courses in medical transcription. However, there is less scope of medical transcriptionist in india.

Clinical research is in demand and has very good job opportunities.

Best Wishes,
