About the EMWA Ambassador's Programme

The Ambassador’s Programme was initiated as part of EMWA’s strategy to raise general awareness about the profession of medical writing and the benefits of joining our organization.

The goal of this programme is to set up a Europe-wide network of experienced EMWA members who are prepared to give presentations in their local areas at university career events, professional training organizations, medical conferences, and at medical communications events.

So far, we have gotten off to a good start. Since October 2017, EMWA Ambassadors have appeared at career events in Berlin, Bucharest, London, Munich, Rome, Reading, Stuttgart, and Zurich with more to come.

On this page, we will be providing updates on all Ambassador presentations and our impressions of these events.

If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, or if you have any information on career events in your vicinity, please contact Abe Shevack at aspscientist@gmail.com or EMWA Head Office at info@emwa.org.
