AMWA Salary Survey

For over 30 years, AMWA Salary Surveys have been the most dependable source of information for employers of medical communicators to set salary ranges and for employees and freelances/independent contractors to negotiate salaries and fees. This is the only compensation survey that focuses specifically on medical writing, editing, and communication professionals.

The 2019 Medical Communication Compensation Survey is now closed.

AMWA has engaged Association Research, Inc. (ARI) to produce the survey, analyze the data, and present initial results.  

AMWA members will be the first receive select survey results and will gain access to the detailed article on compensation findings in the AMWA Journal.
