Medical Writer

Stress

Medical writers must work well under pressure and with deadlines. Expect the tick-tocking in your head to get louder and louder as deadlines roll closer. If you're one to have nightmares about deadlines, dancing sugarplum fairies playing their harps of gold may suddenly morph into frazzled editors impatiently tapping their toes.
