Mentoring


AMWA is pleased to be able to offer experienced medical writers and editors to act as mentors for those wanting to enter the profession, or those looking for guidance on how to set themselves up in the freelance business.

This service is available free of charge as a benefit of AMWA membership and is not available to non-members. However, those who are not yet members may access this service as soon as they join AMWA.

Your mentor will be volunteering their time and goodwill in order to encourage Australasian medical writers and editors who are starting out in the field. Please respect their limitations on the amount of time available, and note that the formal mentoring relationship is limited to three months.

Please note that your mentors’ role is not to edit an individual piece of your work, but to offer more general writing, editing and career advice.
