News Writing Feedback
This is one of 6 tests you can take where your work will be graded by an experienced medical writer as part of the 6 week course. It is recommended that you purchase the 6-Week Course modules here and review prior to taking the feedback tests.
For each test you will receive a "pass" or "fail" as well as a marked up version of your work with additional comments as needed. You can retake each test one time free of charge.
Eligibility to join the Nascent Medical team:
You are eligible to be considered for a subcontracting role with Nascent Medical, LLC, when you have passed at least 5 of the 6 tests, and you are 1) confirmed to have an MD, PhD, or other doctoral level science degree and 2) appear to be fluent in English based on the results of your tests. Most people meeting these requirements do receive subcontracting work, but the amount and duration of work will depend on our business needs and your availability.
If you know that you would like the opportunity to subcontract with Nascent, then you can sign up for the 6-week course and all the tests as a bundle, which is a slightly cheaper option. Please go here for that option.
You can retake any test one time free of charge, but no refunds can be given if you cannot pass the tests. For people who are unsure about their writing ability and/or English language proficiency, it would be better to sign up for each test individually.
