If you’re scientifically-minded, becoming a medical writer is an especially good fit. As a medical writer, you’d be tasked with distilling medical research and the outcomes of various studies into easily digestible copy across a variety of mediums. You could, for instance, draft study abstracts, marketing materials, advisory board summaries, or healthcare policy summaries.
It’s a position that requires a bit more specialization and familiarity with the general orbit of medicine, but it’s typically a more lucrative writing position than most. You’ll likely need a degree in some sort of scientific discipline, if not an intimate familiarity with some area of medicine. If you have those, you can have a world of industries to look into, including pharmaceutical, biotech, universities, and other research institutions.
