How to Hire a Freelance Medical Writer

The increased demand for effective communication has brought a lot of focus to medical writing. These highly specialized writers work closely with researchers, subject matter experts and industry leaders to produce different types of documents.

Freelance medical writing has grown substantially in the latest years, offering a promising niche for those looking for flexibility. Medical writing is usually required by pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, contract research organizations (CRO’s), educational institutions, medical communication companies, media and publishing companies and health-related websites. The combination of research and science, together with excellent written communication are essential characteristics for medical writers. 

If you are looking for tips on how to hire medical writers, this is the right place for you.

What Does a Medical Content Writer Do?

The areas covered by a medical content writer typically include:

  • Regulatory writing for medical devices and pharmaceutical industry
  • Research related scientific reports and documents
  • Drug or disease-related protocols and documents
  • Scientific publications in the medical field
  • Copywriting for healthcare and science-related topics (websites, blogs, magazines)
  • Medical journalism and medical education

A medical writer typically has a bachelor or a Master’s degree in life sciences, a passion for medical communications and knowledge of medical and scientific terminology. Specific knowledge of regulatory guidelines, health policies, drug development and safety, technical guidelines, statistics, language and grammar, literature searching and ethical issues are the most important skills for successful writing in the medical field. The target audience for the medical writer can be the general public, patient groups, medical researchers, medical editors, politicians and policy makers. Medical writers often have certifications from organizations such as the American Medical Writers Association or the European Medical Writers Association. Not all medical writers work on scientific or technical documents: medical content writers typically work on healthcare communications and campaigns, SEO content for blogs, and other marketing material.

Why Hire a Freelance Medical Writer Online?

Experts in medical writing can make a difference in the process of drug development, getting scientific publications accepted, successfully receiving funding, preparing materials for medical education and much more. Regulatory medical writers can help with submitting FDA applications or preparing a medical device for EU MDR.   When looking for freelance medical writers, you can choose those who are experts or have a good understanding of your particular topic. 

Producing high quality medical communications can be challenging and time-consuming for the less experienced. A freelance writer can provide the most effective solution for your communication requirements in the field of research, science, academia, policy and regulation.

If you have a tight deadline, freelance platforms give you the option to choose experts who are available to deliver your project within a short time frame. What's more, you can hire the best talent from anywhere in the world, as a lot of medical writing work can be done remotely. 

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Medical Writer?

When hiring an expert in medical writing, the hourly price starts at 40 USD, depending on the type of project. For bigger assignments and long-term collaborations, a fixed rate price can be beneficial for both parts. A medical content writer typically charges USD 40-60 per hour, whereas a regulatory writer may charge upwards of USD 80 per hour for complex, technical projects. 

A scientific article (ready for submission) usually costs about 600 USD and above. In general, the price for a freelance writing project can vary depending on the writer’s location, experience and academic degree.

How to Write an Effective Job Post to Hire a Medical Writer

For better results with your job posting, we recommend the following topics to be included:

  • Project description or scope of work: it is very important to clearly communicate the scope of the project, its field and objectives. The more information the better, as this enables the freelancer to quickly identify the requirements. If the project is broken into milestones, the amount of rounds of corrections should be included.
  • Duration of the project: state the time frame expected for the final product.
  • By when you need to hire: define your expectations in terms of time to find the right freelancer.
  • Budget: how much you are willing to pay per hour or per project. 
  • Skills required: add the qualities that you expect in a freelancer.

When hiring a writer, make sure that you communicate your needs and expectations from the beginning, in order to assure a pleasant collaboration. It is always a good idea to ask for examples, so you can have an idea on the freelancer’s level of experience, skills, tone and style.

The growth observed in medical writing in recent years has led to an increase in the number of professionals offering freelance services. Online platforms allow for cost-effective, specialized solutions for projects that require experts and a quick turnaround is often possible.
