After completing the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) Essential Skills Certificate program in August 2021, I decided to specialize in health/patient communication and regulatory affairs as a medical writer.
That's when I joined Regulatory Affairs Professional Society (RAPS), which allowed me to take the Regulatory Medical Writing bundle at a lower price. This program comprises the following courses:
Introductory Medical Writing
Intermediate Medical Writing — Investigational Applications
Intermediate Medical Writing — Pharmaceuticals and Biologics
Intermediate Medical Writing — Medical Devices
Last week, I completed this program six months after enrolling:
The truth is that I had already finished the first two courses in September. However, in that month, I fell when I was hiking and fractured my left arm.
Aside from taking time off to make a full recovery, I had to prioritize other learning opportunities, such as my Master's in Medical Translation, which I completed in November.
My goal as a medical writer specializing in regulatory affairs is to help prepare top-quality documents to request approval and marketing of health care products.
That is why I will continue investing in continuing professional development to hone and refine my skills.
I have some questions for you:
What learning opportunities have you already completed since 2022 began?
Is there anything you expect to finish before this month is over?
What other goals do you have for the remainder of the year?
