About Medical Communications
Medical practice is a complex system of human interaction, healthcare infrastructure, belief systems and rapidly evolving scientific evidence, all of which affect how medical science translates to everyday clinical practice. The essence of Medical Communications is communicating the science through educational initiatives that support development of medical understanding across a diverse audience of healthcare providers. Our IPG Health med comms agencies specialize in creating engaging solutions that are deeply founded in the science, and facilitate scientific exchange across healthcare professionals. We do this important work for a diverse client base across different stages of the product lifecycle, from early development and launch preparation, through launch and onward into maturity.
