I wouldn’t waste money on courses. Just apply to jobs. Or apply as a Technical Writer I position entry level. It’s around $52k/yr. Then you can work your way up and onto Medical Writing. Medical and Technical Writers are very similar, usually scientific and pharmaceutical related with drugs SOPs etc.
