MedComms Professionals Academy 2017

MedComms Professionals are proud that our innovative scheme to support new talent and growth in the medcomms sector, is now in its 4th successful year.

We have placed over 60 BSc/MSc/PhDs into their first to industry role to date.

Having identified a talent shortage particularly at the 1-3 year level in the medcomms industry, and a lack of companies taking on and training junior staff, we are offering a solution by training the very best life science graduates in the market to accelerate them through a successful career in medical communication – either in writing or account handling.

Applicants are assessed on an initial cover letter and CV, then if successful go through a rigorous telephone interview which delves into motivations, qualifications, experience and technical knowledge, as well as completing a medical writing test which is marked by an industry expert PMW, all before final assessment to gain a coveted place on the Academy.

We can then offer this freshly trained talent to our clients as a cost-effective solution to their workload and growth plans, saving time and money, and giving them a great start to their careers.

We wanted to come up with something innovative that would support agency’s growth whilst still being cost-effective. So, based on other successful, similar schemes within Clinical Professionals, the MedComms Academy was born.

Here are some testimonials from previous academy attendees:

“I found the MCP Junior assessment centre useful for discussing the different positions within MedComms companies and obtaining more information about each role. The day was very relaxed with a welcoming environment, the consultants were all very friendly and I enjoyed every aspect of the day.”

“I found the beginning presentation that gave information about medical communications particularly useful and especially enjoyed the group work and the ice breaker game at the end. Overall I really enjoyed this day and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting into the medical communications industry.”

Our next instalment of the MedComms Professionals Newsletter will soon be available on our website and sent out to our contacts within the medical communications industry, if you would like to ensure you are sent a list please sent an email to to express your interest.
