If all of these apply to you, we invite you to take the next step to become a freelance medical writer with the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower (ACHS).
ACHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization affiliated with Eisenhower Health, a regional health system that includes a teaching hospital, a community cancer center affiliated with the University of California San Diego, and a network of urgent and primary care clinics located throughout California’s Coachella Valley. ACHS has been an ACCME-accredited provider of continuing medical education for physicians since 1982 and holds Accreditation with Commendation status. We are an accredited provider for pharmacist, nursing, and other healthcare professional continuing education as well. ACHS develops CE/CME activities on a broad range of diseases/topics for national and international audiences (https://www.annenberg.net/).
The ideal freelance medical writer will be a clinician with current or recent experience providing patient care. Because the writer works closely with faculty and the ACHS team, solid written and verbal communication skills are essential. The ability to meet agreed-upon project timelines is required. Each CE activity is developed based on an approved grant proposal, making it desirable for the writer to contribute to the development of the proposal as well as the content for the funded activity. Writers are paid a fee agreed upon prior to the development of the proposal as well as the CE activity.
If you wish to be considered as a freelance medical writer, please submit your current curriculum vitae, list of topics/diseases on which you feel qualified to serve as a writer, and a writing sample. The writing sample must be a 300- to 400-word summary of a recent phase 3 clinical trial of your choosing; the sample should inform the reader about the trial and its implications for clinical practice. We welcome those with clinical and writing experience on a broad range of diseases/topics, as well as those focused on one or two diseases or patient populations.
