Speaking of medical writing and the medical communications industry, there are many people out there who offer career services to help physicians and scientists "break in" to the medical communication industry. There are so many ways to enter the industry and writing isn't the only way. There are opportunities related to business development, strategic planning, project management, educational design, and collaborative partnerships. Of course, if you enjoy writing, then maybe you'll be happy as a medical writer or medical director. I've been working in this industry for the last 5 years and I've enjoyed it.
