We are looking for candidates with excellent written and oral communication skills who can draw on their experiences to write medical articles for a consumer audience. You will need to be able to combine your real-life practical experience alongside in-depth reviews of the current scientific evidence and drug labeling to provide engaging, readable, and digestible pieces.

We are open to remote locations.
