How I got to work as a medical writer (You might be surprised)

I had been occupied for four years selling oncology reference laboratory testing services. It was a great job. It was with a start-up venture capital-backed company. We offered a wide range of immunohistochemical testing and gene rearrangement analyses that the “big labs” didn't do yet. Was a PhD required for this job? No, it wasn't. Did having a PhD help me succeed in the job? Definitely: it helped me get appointments to see the pathologists, oncologists and hematologists who ordered our tests. It got me invitations to speak about our services at hospital department meetings.
