Discover Boston Medical Center
To provide the best possible comprehensive care requires the brightest and most ambitious minds. Whether you are involved in operations, administration or management - the pursuit of excellence begins with great leaders. Which is why the Boston Medical Center Emerging Leaders Health Care Administration Program is looking for serious, motivated undergraduates and postgraduates for its paid internship and fellowship programs.

Our private, not-for-profit, 547-bed facility emphasizes community-based services, providing accessible- and excellent - medical care while serving as the largest safety net hospital in New England.

As the primary teaching affiliate for the Boston University School of Medicine, we offer a dynamic and progressive environment in which to learn, practice, and grow as a professional.

Life in the South End
From the beginnings of the American Revolution to the cutting edge of modern medicine, Boston has always been an exciting place to live and work - and from our location in the South End, Boston Medical Center is at the center of it all.

Located minutes from the renowned Museum of Fine Arts, the shops of Newbury Street and the excitement of Fenway Park and the Fleet Center, the South End is an exciting and diverse community know for great restaurants, thriving art scene and beautiful, historic architecture. And with the beaches of Cape Cod, the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, and dozens of world-class universities just a short drive away, it's an ideal setting for a fulfilling career….and a full life.

Internship Program (3 months during the summer)
You will be provided with an opportunity to learn in a fast-paced, productive health care environment. Interns work with experienced directors and managers in order to gain tangible skills and valuable work experience.
