Here's what the course includes:

  • The entire  AI in Medical Writing and Editing: Blueprint for Success in a Changing World online course that helps you implement AI into your medical writing and editing workflow so that you can work faster and more effectively and stay current in today’s evolving workplace.
  • Six modules that walk you through implementing AI into your medical writing and editing workflow, as well as strategies to position yourself for upcoming job and consulting opportunities that use your medical writing and editing background.
  • Action guides, prompts, templates, and checklists that you can use to implement AI into your workflow.
  • Transcripts of all the training videos (perfect if you like to read rather than watch videos).
  • Audio-only files of all the training videos (if you would rather listen to the training sessions instead of watching the videos).
  • Six weeks of live Q&As that correspond with each module. This is your opportunity to get live support from Dr. Emma Hitt Nichols and your fellow course participants. Calls are recorded, and you can submit questions ahead of time, so scheduling and time zone differences are no problem. You’ll still have access to the information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! For the field of medical writing, it’s best if you have an advanced degree in a science and a fluent command of the English language. It helps if you enjoy writing and are good at it. If you’re interested, now’s the ideal time to get on board by learning from the get-go how to implement AI in your workflow. 

No. You may see a little Python code here and there, but this will be provided, and everything will be made clear. You may decide you want to learn how to code with Python while using AI though!

We can’t guarantee what the outcomes will be for you because that depends on you and the amount of time and effort you put in, but we’ll certainly provide many ideas about how to get clients and ways to enhance your skillset.

There is NO offer of work from my company, implied or otherwise, if you take this course. That said, I have a long history of hiring subcontractors directly from my courses. That’s where nearly all of my current subcontractors have come from in fact. Just to reiterate though, there is NO offer of work from my company with this course. 

You should count on 2-3 hours per week of learning and practicing for 4 weeks after the course starts. However, the modules are self-paced, and you’ll have access for the next year to the course content, even if you don’t sign up for the monthly membership. In this inaugural offering, the modules will be released once a week for 4 weeks, but you can take the next year to finish them. After that, there may be a small renewal fee for continued access to the latest version.

Regulatory writing is a niche within the medical writing industry. Many of the techniques in this course will apply to regulatory writing. However, Dr. Hitt Nichols is not a regulatory writer, so use cases won’t directly focus on regulatory writing. The course should still be helpful to regulatory writers though. 

Use cases will tend to focus on the following types of writing and activities: researching the literature and creating outlines; writing news pieces, manuscripts, needs assessments, press releases, educational materials, and feature articles; as well as creating PowerPoint slide decks and writing slide notes. Also covered are editing and proofreading with a focus on implementing the AMA Manual of Style

The course is directed towards both freelance and staff medical writers and editors. In the final module, which covers emerging career opportunities related to AI, both staff and consulting roles will be considered. 

Yes, we do. You have 14 days from the date of purchaseto consider whether this course is for you. You can receive a no-questions-asked refund within 14 days by emailing 

At this time, the membership is only available to course participants. 

You can quit any time and join back later, but the pricing will almost certainly be higher than the initial price paid.

It’s possible the course will be open again later in the year. However, if you’re interested, the best thing to do is to sign up now while it’s being offered. You can always put the course on the back burner and access the modules and recorded Q&As whenever you’re ready. 

One-on-one coaching is not available. However, we have experienced medical writers and editors on hand to evaluate work that you submit as described above; Dr. Hitt Nichols will answer any questions during the Q&A calls.

Emma is a veteran in the medical writing/editing community who has been providing value (both free and paid) for several years. Her course gave me greater clarity and a better perspective regarding my preferences in the field. Her mentorship, expertise, and the confidence one gains to solicit clients of their own, are far more valuable than the price of her course(s)
— Petal S. Veterinarian

The Learn AMA Style/Become a Medical Editor course is a one-stop source to learn and hone your medical editing skills. Emma covers medical editing, AMA style, and running your freelance editing business in an in-depth manner. The course also covers a burgeoning medical writing field, medical writing support services (MWSS). This one-of-a-kind course has many practical examples that set it apart from other programs out there. The course has helped me get high-paying clients in the MWSS field (an avenue I would not have explored if not for this course).
—Kalpana S, PhD

Emma is a great teacher and mentor.  Her course was extremely helpful in getting me started in my new career. As a result of the course, I was able to successfully transition from clinical practice to full-time freelance work in a short amount of time.
—Xiomara S, MD

Learn AMA Style/Become a Medical Editor course is most likely my best investment this year, and it’s still only spring. The course provides a great overview of the latest edition of AMA Manual of Style, addressing the most important and most common issues one can face in medical editing. On top of that, Emma has a whole module on how to set up and run your freelance business. That alone makes the course worth joining. It is a great journey, from big picture aspects to the smallest nuances of punctuation. This is the best editing course out there, period.
—Roland L. PhD

Whenever anyone asks me how to get started in medical writing, I suggest taking Emma’s course. The course itself is tremendously helpful in learning the basics and business of medical writing and generating writing samples that can eventually lead to jobs. Other medical writing courses are out there, but few, if any, give this opportunity. Additionally, in taking the course, you become part of a medical writing community to exchange ideas and ask questions. In the past year, I’ve been able to bring in more income than I had hoped for doing a job that I love, and it all began with Emma’s training!
— Brigid S. PhD
