"I have a feeling that at least until pretty recently, relatively few people said to themselves when they were 17, 'I’m not going to be a fireman or a nurse; I’m going to be a medical writer.' Medical writing was there, and either they stumbled into it or they realized when they arrived at this certain point that it was a logical next step for them."

—Douglas Haneline

"At the end of the day…the test of efficacy for medical writing is, does it contribute to the health or the good of people who are sick, or people who want to remain healthy, who need to know more information?"

—Brian Bass
