mainly medical writing
Tim Albert website
Welcome: the focus of this site is medical communication, and in particular writing and editing.
Never say never: another Train the Trainers course is scheduled
It's very flattering...but people still keep writing to me asking if I am going to run another Train the Trainers course.
This is a three day course which teaches people how to run the successful one and two day courses Write a journal article - and get it published. It also gives participants all the relevant course materials that we have developed over nearly 20 years - and a personal licence to deliver the course. Areas covered will include marketing, preparation, dealing with difficult people and debriefing. Each participant also gets a chance to practice their delivery.
The next course will take place at the White Horse Hotel, Dorking UK on May 21-24 2013.

You will find on this site:
- Details of courses on effective writing, writing scientific papers (and getting them published) and editing medical journals
- Useful advice on medical writing and training, on topics from how to amass a lot of peer reviewed publications quickly to what makes an effective writing style
- Information about the four books I have written on this subject
- A selection of other books that I have read, enjoyed and can recommend.
Much of the information comes from an 18-year period running Tim Albert Training, during which time I personally ran about 1,000 short courses. It also comes from a newsletter Short Words that I published for much of this period, and which dealt with health care communication.
I have nearly retired from running courses, though you will see on this site that the courses we designed are still available. I plan to write a blog, and would like to continue the work of Short Words in sniffing and publicising out some of the worst of health care gobbledegook.
I will also cultivate my garden, and share with you photographs of the same according to season.
