I have been given the following sentence, and I need to identify the errors.

For this side of medical writing, an advanced medical or scientific degree is needed. This could be the perfect outlet for you as a physician who loves to write, as your vast experience will give you the knowledge necessary to handle important, technical content.

Should the comma after the word "important" be omitted?

Kindly explain

I consider that a matter of judgment rather than of strict punctuation rules.

I'd omit it.

Yes. Being a doctor does not specifically give you the knowledge necessary to handle important content. It does give you that for technical content in your field. You can handle technical content that is important, which is what is meant, not that you can handle content that is both important and technical.
