Job description

Being a medical writer at OPHTEC is a challenging job in which you combine your scientific skills with in-depth product knowledge. You create and write plans to gather internal and external sources of clinical data. After determining the timeline for your plan internally, you conduct literature searches of peer review publications, assess internal and external complain registries, analyze clinical datasets in relation to risk management files and report findings in ‘post market surveillance’ and ‘clinical evaluation’ reports. You incorporate all relevant data and present your findings in a clear and concise manner in high-quality documents that are essential in obtaining and keeping CE certificates on our products. During this process you ensure that all your medical writing activities are performed according to the applicable guidelines, legislations and templates.
