The WI Internship program was founded in 2010 and has a strong history of training successful medical writers, many of whom are employed at WI. Each year, WI accepts new interns into the Internship Program via a rigorous application process.

The Internship program consists of both instructional and practical components. Interns are mentored one-on-one by experienced medical writers throughout the program, with increasing levels of independence as the intern becomes more experienced. The goal of the Internship program is to provide a fast-paced introduction to the skills and knowledge needed for a successful career in medical writing.
