EMWA Future Conferences

Continuing education and professional training for medical communicators

The EMWA spring and autumn conferences provide a medium for networking, active discussions and extensive cost-effective professional training. It is also an opportunity to benefit from the experiences of other medical writers.

The venues, facilities, and training programmes are chosen to offer the best possible learning environment. In addition to the formal training sessions, a relaxed, friendly conference atmosphere provides for ideal networking opportunities and enables all those attending to meet medical writers and communicators at all stages in their careers.
