AMWA is pleased to be able to offer a mentoring programme for individuals who are currently working as a medical writer or editor and are seeking career-related guidance.

After assessing your application, the AMWA committee will strive to match you with an appropriate mentor from within our network. Please note that this is dependent on the availability of a suitable mentor, and not all applicants are able to be matched.

Consideration for mentoring is restricted to current AMWA members only.

For those of you who are considering a career in medical writing or editing, or are just starting out, we are working on compiling a useful list of existing resources and organisations that can support you. We will send a communication out to AMWA members once this information is available and published to the website.

If you have any questions about the mentoring programme – or AMWA in general – please send us a message here.

To apply for the mentorship programme, please email
