30th April 2024, UK — The PM Society and Word Monster are now collaborating to focus on raising standards of medical writing by offering Word Monster courses and workshops. Word Monster’s objective is to set the bar for quality and training, ultimately ensuring healthcare professionals and patients are receiving exceptional content to make meaningful decisions.

Shared Vision for Excellence

  • The PM Society, the not-for-profit organisation with its legacy of shaping industry standards, offers expert-refined training courses and recognises excellence through the annual PM Society Awards.
  • Word Monster, the specialist med comms agency known for its content-first approach, scientific storytelling, and high-quality standards, brings deep expertise in bespoke and thorough training. The training arm of Word Monster, Monster Academy, can advance new or experienced writers looking to rapidly upskill or finesse their skills.

Setting the standard for training
The PM Society and Word Monster are both committed to establishing higher minimum standards for medical writing. Both collaborators are dedicated to improving training and fostering innovation in the industry.

Continuous professional development (CPD) is a cornerstone for both companies. The PM Society Academy courses and Monster Academy programmes include CPD accredited content to ensure competency and quality. The importance of CPD has been recognised by both the PM Society and the Healthcare Communications Association, with a drive for medical writers to invest a minimum of 32 hours of individual development per year. This encourages writers to improve and keep up to date with industry developments.

We’re really excited to be starting our collaboration with Word Monster. The PM Society have a focus on raising standards in the pharma marketing and communications industry. The objective of this collaboration is to support those in med comms with the training they need to ensure healthcare professionals and patients are receiving exceptional content to make meaningful decisions. Together with Word Monster we are closer to achieving our goal” – Alexandra Moore, Training Manager of PM Society

Access to training programmes will be a key focus, with the PM Society providing a platform to broaden the reach and impact of the Word Monster’s educational courses.

“This collaboration underlines our joint commitment to raising standards across the med comms industry, helping talented individuals to fulfil exceptional careers in medical communications. Our programmes are built with every career stage in mind, so there’s truly something for everyone,says Carl, founder of Word Monster.
