I am a student studying English at BYU. I am hoping to write for a
company in the medical industry when I graduate. Unfortunately, the
technical writing class that I am taking now focuses much more on the
writing of computer manuals and the like because that is the are of
my instructor's expertise. I am seeking any information you can
offer on possible internships or even pharmaceutical or biotech
companies that might hire a recent graduate. Are there any
significant differences that I should be aware of between scientific
writing and technical (or computer manual) writing?
