MedComms Symposium

We are delighted to host two top local medical comms agencies and a freelance medical writer and editor. They will showcase the role and specifications of working in the MedComms sector, as well as job and internship opportunities. After the individual presentations there will be an extensive Q&A for the representatives, so get your chance to ask all the questions you might have!
