This book will equip readers with all the skills needed to write convincing and polished assignments in biomedical sciences. The first part introduces the idea of writing for one’s audience and enables readers to understand what’s expected of them from different types of assignment. Part two provides detailed guidance on specific writing and presentation tasks, with individual chapters on essays, lab reports, reflective writing, posters and presentations. Parts three and four cover all of the key skills needed for successful writing in the biomedical sciences and help students develop a critical eye when selecting and researching information and create clear, well-structured assignments. Chapters contain top tips, examples and helpful summaries of key points, and three annotated sample assignments are provided in an appendix.
This is an essential companion to any student studying Biomedical Science or related disciplines such as Physiology, Biomedical Engineering, Pharmacy, Medicine and Dentistry.
