  • Medical Information Letters
  • Medical writing (late stage)
  • Various reports needed within Medical Information
  • Posters for presentation at scientific/medical conferences
  • Editing and preparing FAQ and Knowledge Base Documents
  • PowerPoint® presentations of any scope
  • Abstracts
  • Books and book chapters
  • Writing resource documents that satisfy global needs to eliminate use of “data on file” as references
  • Writing MedWatch narratives within a drug safety environment


Keyboard0602-3Dr. David A. Wells is a highly regarded author and educator, with a body of work that includes a 600-page authoritative reference book on drug sample preparation, 20 publications in scientific journals, 6 book chapters, dozens of technical application notes, instructions for use, and numerous product brochures for sales and marketing of sample preparation products used in pharmaceutical bioanalytical laboratories. In addition, Dr. Wells has written and/or edited dozens of medical response letters intended for health care professionals, and he has written custom responses to medical information inquiries almost daily for eight years. Most of his medical writing has been for clients and has not been published.
