Course Details

Proper and timely dissemination of information is crucial for the advancement of medicine and other related sciences. In this regard, writing has become the popular medium by which medical and scientific information can be disseminated easily. This would allow healthcare professionals to learn new treatment techniques, inform other practitioners of the latest drugs, or even observe the trend of new infectious diseases. Similarly, for scientists and researchers, sharing data to a wider and more international audience would advance scientific exploration and discovery allowing both the medical and scientific fields to grow. However, a major hindrance to achieving these goals often lie in how a report or manuscript is written. A common misconception among healthcare professionals and scientists struggling to write about their work is that English writing is always the same where in fact it actually differs. It is important to emphasize that Medical and Scientific Writing differs substantially from literary writing. This course is designed for the healthcare and science professional who need to write a clinical report or journal publication using the correct format, writing style, appropriate language, and even manuscript layout.
