Science and Medical Writers
If you are considering a career as a writer, you should take
English, journalism, and communication courses in high school.
Computer classes will also be helpful. If you know in high school
that you want to do scientific or medical writing, it would be to
your advantage to take biology, physiology, chemistry, physics,
math, health, psychology, and other science-related courses. If
your school offers journalism courses and you have the chance to
work on the school newspaper or yearbook, you should take advantage
of these opportunities. Part-time employment at health care
facilities, newspapers, publishing companies, or scientific
research facilities can also provide experience and insight
regarding this career. Volunteer opportunities are also available
in hospitals and nursing homes.
