ENG 310-B Special Topic: (enroll in section B)
"Professional Writing for Healthcare" 
(3)

Spring Semester
MW 8:30-9:50 am
Online

Note: ENG 310 counts as Advanced Writing for spring

The healthcare industry is the fastest growing sector of the U.S and global economy with extensive career opportunities. This course is for people who are interested in possibly working as professional writers and strategic communicators in the healthcare industry, particularly as social media specialists, print designers, technical communicators, publication editors, and public relations specialists. This course may also be of interest to others working in various capacities in healthcare who would just like to learn more about healthcare communications.

The course includes many guest speakers who discuss their careers and their approaches to healthcare communication, including speakers from hospital social media, non-profit public relations, pharmaceutical sales, public and community health, Indigenous health research, medical device manufacturing, health records project management, grant writing, and medical journal editing.

You will be able to tailor each of the projects to your particular interests within the broad field of healthcare, completing such projects as:

  • press release and/or newsletter--taking the findings from a medical research report and rewriting for more general readers
  • public health document design--redesigning an existing health brochure (may be patient information, marketing, etc.)
  • social media content strategy--analyzing and then designing a social media campaign for a healthcare organization
  • professional trend report--examining communications in a particular healthcare field (of your choosing) and making recommendations

If you have any questions, please contact Professor Heidi McKee (mckeeha@miamioh.edu).

Mallory-Wilson Spotlight

Esha Chadha
At the end of my senior year of high school, I knew that I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. And, being from Columbus, I was told by my peers that Miami University had a great pre-med program, and it was one of the only universities in the Midwest that offered microbiology as a major.

Grace Chaney
Taking the initiative is crucial to getting what you want, not only from your time here at Miami but also from life in general. Push yourself to see how much of your potential you can manifest into something tangible, and I think you’ll be surprised at just how much you're capable of!

Jeri Oranski
As important as it is to apply yourself and be dedicated to your studies, make sure to jump into new things. The more experiences you have outside your own discipline, the more you'll learn empathy and critical thinking skills that you will need no matter where your path leads.

Mitchell Singstock
Even though I changed my major around a lot during my first year at Miami, the essence of what I wanted to do never really changed. My goal has always been to understand the healing process, not only on the biological level, but also on the psychological, societal, and spiritual. I want to get the full picture of medicine before I enter medical school to really round out my education.

Rebecca Wyma
My MWCHE preceptor­ship was also the most in-depth phys­ician shadow­ing experience that I've ever had thanks to Miami. Over the course of 5 days I shadowed Dr. Paul Gehring, an obstetrics and gynecology specialist in Tulsa, Oklahoma and a Miami alum. I stayed with him and his family, which was really incredible because I got to see how he manages his work and personal life. This made me see the real life of a physician and portrayed a lifestyle that I could one day see myself potentially having as well.

Sammi Marshall
The preceptor­ship, which is basic­ally an oppor­tunity where stu­dents shadow under practicing physicians to gain experience, was coordinated by one of my favorite professors, David Pennock, a professor of biology, my advisor, and director of the Mallory-Wilson Center. I can talk to him about pretty much anything!

Christopher Beecroft
Some of my best experiences have been working as a residence assistant in Stanton Hall, which houses the Premedical Living and Learning Community (LLC) — all students planning to head off to some sort of health professional school. It has been a great way to be a role model, someone who has taken the same steps as the freshmen and sophomores have.

Alli Pfister
The pre-health community at Miami came together to help provide support in more ways than one. The way we have risen to the challenge (of COVID-19) and found ways to continue learning, growing, and gaining experience in healthcare will only serve to empower and motivate us in our future careers. I believe we will make amazing doctors in whatever capacity we choose because of this experience.

Tiffany Campbell
Most recently, I did a 10-week summer internship through the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education to do neurosurgery research and shadowing at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. I shadowed a neurosurgeon, Dr. Sudhakar Vadivelu, over the entire summer and worked on clinical research projects with him. This has been one of my favorite college experiences, and I'm actually still working there once a week, developing some manuscripts for publication, and I delivered a conference talk in DC in October!
