Afternoon Session 2 (Choice #2)
Medical writers know how to write, but they need more than great writing skills to advance their careers. In this presentation, Dr. Wang will discuss the non-writing skills all medical writers (in-house employees and freelancers) need to achieve and sustain success in the business.
At the end of Dr. Wang’s presentation, attendees will have an increased awareness of the importance of communication skills, business and customer service skills, time and project management skills, as well as perseverance and resilience; how these skills and abilities can collectively affect career and business prospects; and resources and strategies that they can use to strengthen these skills and abilities.
