Cheers to the entire team of Turacoz for designing such a beneficial course of “Medical writing – Medical communications”. Previously I have no idea about the role of a medical writer and what medical communications mean. Through this course I could learn about new software’s like Endnote, Veeva platform etc. I must say the course was informative and we can get good experience by handling the subjective assignments. I would like to thank all the course directors, instructors and course designers from the bottom of my heart. This is a course one can look upon if you are a beginner.
The content of the course is excellent. One thing that really impressed me was that the content was based on the personal experience of the team and was not just a collection of some bookish notes. The instructors were highly knowledgeable and were patient enough to solve our doubts and queries. My overall experience was good and I would definitely recommend this course to someone who is interested in learning about medical writing
Before joining Turacoz medical writing course, I felt like a small fish trying to swim in a vast ocean. My journey in the course helped me hone my knowledge of writing, and soft skills and transform me into the confident person I am today. The knowledgeable mentors and fun-filled learning with lectures delivered by the experienced and best professors are the golden moments of course. I was also proactively involved in co-curricular during the course, as I was always getting my doubts cleared. I also worked in corporate earlier but I have not seen such an enthusiastic team before. hanks to all the Mentors who made it easy to understand complex topics and concepts.
I would like to thank all the mentors of Turacoz Healthcare who helped us throughout the course with their share of knowledge and experience in Medical writing. Me as an individual gained core knowledge about this field and how progressive it would be if I get a chance to explore and make this as a part of my career. Also, we got some extra time to submit our work as being new in this field and going through the sessions and understanding them in depth, all the team of mentors were readily active for us to clear our doubts even on weekends and in any time of the day.
Certificate course on ‘Medical Communications: Medical writing for Medical Affairs’ was a great opportunity to learn about the medical communications field. After my PhD and 2 years of postdoctoral research, I was looking for a transition from academia. Through this course I realized that medical affairs can be an exciting career option to use one’s scientific knowledge to bridge the gap between the pharma industry and HCPs and other stakeholders including the general public. The trainers did a fantastic job and the course content was perfectly designed to suit a wide STEM audience.
The course Medical Writing for Medical Affairs covered all the spots required for a newbie, I believe. The speakers had a very realistic and positive approach to teaching which is much needed to know about a field, how it is thriving, its scope, the skillset required and the value it holds. The assignments and the classes gave us an insight into a medical writer’s work, and the exposure was worth it. The management and guidance have been great. The best and most genuine platform for people to learn from. On a serious note, I am even more inspired to be a medical writer than before. It is given me the right kind of motivation to pursue this as my career.
