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.
