How to Write a Medical Thriller

Do you have a superb idea for a medical thriller, but don't know how to begin to go about it? Put away those applications for medical school; you do not need to be an M.D. to write a medical thriller.

Just like the legal world, the medical community has a language all its own. You will need to familiarize yourself with this language before setting out to write a medical thriller. You should always have at your side a few basic reference books like Grey's Anatomy and a medical dictionary. Listen to dialogue on exceptional medical television dramas like ER and House.

In order to develop your protagonist and secondary characters, you need to know the qualifications of doctors and nurses. You will need to know exactly what type of education is required. You will need to understand the basics of residencies and the distinctions between different types of practices, such as internal medicine versus general surgery.

You will need to aptly describe your hospital or clinic setting in your medical thriller. Again, ER and House may be helpful in this regard. However, you do not want to limit yourself to sight. In order to describe the smells and sounds of an actual hospital or clinic, you should pay a visit to one. Bring a small recorder and a pad and pen to take notes.

Speak with an expert. Of course, doctors are ideal, but nurses, even administrators or dietitians, would be helpful, too. They can help explain to you what a doctor's or patient's day is like, how families react to learning different kinds of news, what the ICU is like. Doctors and nurses themselves can describe the types of emotions they experience when they lose a patient, how they attempt to distance themselves from their work, and what it feels like to save a life. They can also tell you stories about hospital politics and policies, and how the medical staff interacts with one another.

Read as much as you can in the medical thriller genre. One of my favorite medical thriller writers is F. Paul Wilson (at least his earlier stuff). Another is Stanley Pottinger. By reading medical thrillers you will get an idea of exactly how much technical data you will need to add to your novel. You may be surprised at how little. Remember, you simply want to create the illusion of reality, not bog the reader down with medical school text.

Thanks for reading How to Write a Medical Thriller.
