The Office of Research is pleased to announce that Kyle Johnson Moore, PhD, director of Scientific Writing, recently earned her Medical Writer Certified (MWC®) credential. This credential defines the scope of medical writing practice and distinguishes individuals in the field.
The credential is given by the Medical Writing Certification Commission (MWCC) of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA).

The certification denotes medical writing competency and commitment to ethical and practice standards.
The MWCC is a multidisciplinary group of subject matter experts experienced in medical communication within medical writing specialty areas. It developed the certification and exam content after conducting a ground-breaking job analysis to define the core competencies of medical writers across a variety of work environments.
