I am Dr Alex Wilde, a medical writer since 2001, with a flair for writing and knowledge across a broad range of therapeutic areas.
With a background in both academic medicine and health journalism, I am able to synthesise complex scientific data into audience-ready publishable material to a high standard.
Whether you need evidence-based technical reports for a specialist medical audience or a consumer health piece or patient information, I can deliver completed high quality projects to suit your brief.
My PhD and post doctoral program in psychiatry trained me in quantitative and qualitative scientific methodology, MeSH heading searches, literature reviews, systematic review and meta-analysis, multivariate statistical analysis and interpretation and producing peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals. I am also a peer reviewer.
My Master’s journalism training furnished me with skills in writing investigative journalism, print features, White papers and engaging web content.
I have a passion for writing from concept to production. I am experienced in meeting client requirements in a timely manner, with open communication through your preferred channel from first to final draft.
When I am not immersed in the written word, I can be found snorkelling with wobbegongs and turtles, hiking in the beautiful Australian bush or practicing my newfound interest in watercolour painting.
