How we can help

We are a small team of PhD and MD professional writers who specialise in medical education (CME) training materials and transcription services.

Peer review
manuscript writing

The quality of your first draft determines the duration between submission and publication. We focus on delivering high-quality first drafts.


Overwhelming your audience with a busy presentation may frustrate rather than inform and educate. We create engaging presentations containing the key messages and visuals to support the science being discussed.


Personal development is essential and this is increasingly achieved through bite sized and online methods. We create well-crafted podcasts allowing you the flexibility to control your own development and growth.
