Hi everyone! My name is Katharina and I joined the Tink Tank Community in February this year. After what felt like an eternity in working from home, it was time for a change. And coworking turned out to be the right thing.
I founded my one-women medical writing business katylistic at the beginning of 2021. I had my doubts about making this decision in the middle of the pandemic. But still, I’m absolutely happy with my decision. I’m a medical doctor and have worked as an orthopedic and trauma surgeon for some years. Being a surgeon is great, but working under the strict hierarchies in German hospitals… not so great.
As a child, I always wanted to become a journalist, and by chance, I came across a profession called medical writing. It’s a very diverse field, and people with completely different backgrounds become medical writers. After three years of working for an international medical device company, I became a freelancer.
I usually support medical devices and pharmaceutical companies with clinical evaluation reports, clinical studies, and the development of new products. But I also write product brochures for patients, website content for healthcare professionals, and train other medical writers as a member of the European Medical Writing Association.
When I’m not reading or writing, you probably find me running or biking on the trails around Heidelberg.
See you soon!
