Conference Program

The Call for Proposals is now closed. We received a record number of proposals and anticipate a phenomenal program thanks to your support. Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal to share their expertise and knowledge with the medical writing community. If you submitted a proposal, we anticipate the review process will conclude by mid-April.

This year, we are working to create a program that not only ignites passion for medical communication but provides opportunities for self-care and invigoration. In addition to trends and opportunities in medical writing, this conference will feature a new topic area, “Wellness and work/life balance.” This theme complements the beautiful California backdrop. Other topic areas include

  • The Evolving Regulatory Landscape 
  • Scientific Publications and Publication Planning
  • Tools and Technology 
  • The Business of Freelance
  • Leadership and Management
  • Wellness and Work/Life Balance
  • Writing and Editing Core Competencies
  • Fresh Perspectives on Health Literacy and Lay Audiences
  • Diverse Medical Writing Settings (CME, Grant Writing, etc.) 

We look forward to seeing you November 6-9 in sunny San Diego. Questions? Contact
