AMWA Rocky Mountain Chapter
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association! AMWA-RMC includes the states of Colorado, Utah & Wyoming. (Residents of Idaho and Montana also participate.) A nonprofit society, AMWA promotes excellence in biomedical communication by:
bringing together communicators and editors engaged in the medical and allied health professions throughout the world,
offering an extensive educational program,
providing a forum for networking and interactive meetings, and
publishing the quarterly AMWA Journal.
The AMWA Rocky Mountain Chapter plans 3–4 programs around the Denver and Salt Lake City metro areas each year. Some programs involve topics that may stimulate ideas for writing, while other programs concern particular aspects of medical writing.

Benefits of AMWA Membership: AMWA offers medical writers and editors opportunities for professional development at the Annual Conference, held each fall, and at regional conferences located throughout the country. These conferences are an excellent opportunity to brush up on your grammar skills, further develop your writing style, learn about new and emerging technologies, or just network with other professionals. For more information on these conferences, please visit the AMWA national organization website.
AMWA also offers an extensive array of courses to help members build their skills and earn valuable credentials. The Medical Writer Certified (MWC®) credential has been developed by the Medical Writing Certification Commission (MWCC), in collaboration with the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA). The MWC defines the scope of medical writing practice and distinguishes individuals in the field.
