On 13 June 2012 we celebrated A Day in the Life of MedComms. Contributions came in from around the world and were published here as they arrived throughout the day. Browse through the 50 or so posts and see what you think. Overall, the variety was quite impressive, though I admit I didn’t post all the pictures of computers on desktops that I received. Some of the entries are particularly insightful into daily working life in MedComms.
It was all somewhat experimental, quite informal, and far more labour intensive behind the scenes than I had anticipated. In hindsight, though, that could have been mostly mitigated by more pre-planning. Or an assistant! It certainly could have been slicker, I accept. But I quite like the slightly unpolished results. It makes it all that much more personal I think. And the objective was to try to encourage personal stories. Inevitably in a business like MedComms, commercial realities, confidentiality issues and the sometimes odd demands of “the management” will have influenced what, if anything, was contributed by individual agencies.
I am already getting messages about doing the same again next year. For now, I’ll reserve judgement on that one!
I’d really appreciate hearing your comments and feedback either posted here or sent direct to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to the many who participated and supported us, one way or another.
