Medical Writing Fellowship Program

Back in 2018, representatives of our legacy company, Impact Pharmaceutical Services, launched a Medical Writing Fellowship Program. We are proud to say that this program continues today.

The Medical Writing Fellowship Program is for professionals who are looking to gain experience in the medical/regulatory writing field. Fellows will be exposed to a variety of regulatory documents related to the clinical development of investigational and marketed drugs and biologics.

Program Description
This full-time fellowship program spans approximately 9 months (March-December) of each calendar year and hosts 2 to 4 fellows per class. Accepted fellows will receive a competitive salary and our standard benefit package during this fellowship.

Over the course of the fellowship, fellows will:

  • Collaborate with Syner-G colleagues and provide medical writing support in the preparation of scientific and regulatory documents related to the clinical development of investigational and marketed drugs and biologics.
  • Perform quality control review of various documents.
  • Participate in in-house seminars and other training opportunities.
