allegro prepared me to be successful in medical communications. Be it the first two months of classroom-based learning (I soon realised that I had no idea how to use PowerPoint effectively) or the two 5-month rotations in agency, through allegro I gained invaluable experience working with several teams across various therapy areas.

How does it work?

The fast-track programme is designed to develop you as a Medical Writer in 12 months.

Initially you’ll focus on ‘core-skills training’, where we provide focussed training and the opportunity to practice your skills in a ‘safe’ environment.

Next, two five-month guided placements within our Ashfield Health teams allow you to experience real-life account work where you’ll work with both medical affairs and publications teams, allowing you time to experience both aspects of the role.

Supported by the allegro team and your mentor throughout, you’ll experience what life is really like working as an Associate Medical Writer.
