Several months ago I registered into freelanc jobs and I found out that there is a bulk of job hiring with MEDICAL WRITERS...they are required to make health articles...I just wonder, WHY IS MEDICAL WRITERS IN DEMAND? Is it because many people nowadays rely on the infromation from the internet whenever they feel sick or is it because many students research on the internet alone and not on the libraries when it comes to medical reports? please clarify me on this...thanks.

Plenty of people turn to internet for information and hence medical writers are in demand. People are hungry to know about cures. Some people want to cross check if their doctor is telling the truth. So they turn to internet. Information is what everyone wants. So medical writers are in demand.

You got a real point there nishdan01, people are indeed hungry for informations and they resort first on the internet...most especially about their disease and with regards to the cure. Yes, that's true...they wanted to cross-check if their doctor's are treating them the right medications and all. Thanks for the comment.

The high price of a doctor visit has sent many people to alternate sources for information. So the typical patient has visited the internet and tried to come up with some solutions before they every step into an office. The price of medical care is to just too high. The medical articles I write earn the most money and the second would be financial information.

Yes that's true Trensue, such sources of information which is easy to access is the internet. I believe a lot of people are smarter now not to expend too much money on doctor check-ups. Thanks for the comment. Happy mylotting.
