Overview :

Anderson DDB, one of North America's leading health and lifestyle agencies, is looking for a Medical Writer with excellent writing skills, careful attention to detail, and the ability to translate scientific research into compelling and readable copy. Anderson DDB offers the opportunity to work remotely or within an office setting.

The position of Medical Writer at Anderson DDB is a unique opportunity to combine knowledge, scientific rigour, and creativity into meaningful stories that have the potential to impact the lives of patients living with disease, as well as the caregivers and healthcare providers dedicated to improving their quality of life. A keen understanding of disease processes and the ability to identify unmet needs allows us to develop key messages and weave together compelling narratives that resonate with patients and physicians alike.

As Medical Writer, you will have an opportunity to research and write educational and promotional materials for products at different stages of their life-cycle. For drugs in early phases, you will help analyze the landscape and contribute to shaping initial interactions with the medical community.

Hematologic cancers, ulcerative colitis, and sickle cell disease are some of the accounts that you will be able to gain expertise on. Although you may choose to work remotely, you won't be working in isolation-we have a cohesive and dynamic team of medical writers and editors for support, along with a creative team of designers and artists to help bring our scientific and medical communications to life.
