"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).
