“Being an intern at Gold Star was a great way to gain exposure to the world of medical writing. During my time as an intern, I was given the opportunity to work on a project and witness the type of work medical writers can be involved in. Karen also gave presentations on the different responsibilities of medical writers and shared wise career advice. It was evident based on my conversations with her that she is very knowledgeable on the field and she was always eager to help and to answer any questions I had. Overall, the internship helped present what one can expect if working as a medical writer. From this internship, I gained valuable experience that will help further my professional development. I highly recommend those who are new to the field and thinking of a career in medical writing to utilize the internship and resources available at Gold Star.”

“I was introduced to Gold Star Communications at a networking event while I was in grad school. I was able to land a spot in their highly competitive medical writing internship. The work I did during the internship reminded me why I loved science and solidified my determination to get a job working within the pharmaceutical industry, either as a medical writer, sales rep, or medical science liaison. With the internship under my belt and active networking, I was able to land a job as a full-time medical writer several months after graduating.”
