Does being a clinician or holding a faculty appointment make you or me a capable medical writer? No, it doesn’t, any more than being a physician or even an inspiring educator qualifies me to be a good stock picker, business manager, or even vacation planner. It only means that I have medical knowledge and skills, and am trained to care for patients or perhaps have some gift for teaching or research. On the other hand, just because you are a clinician who sees patients daily does not mean that you cannot become a capable, even great, writer. And, yes, even the classroom or bedside teacher can learn to write well. Being that great writer requires knowledge, practice, experience, the capacity to endure rejection, and a strong will to succeed.
