Excellent community dedicated to health of patients

Research Intern (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at Children's Hospital Boston as an intern for less than a year

ProsIncredible opportunity to work with physicians, researcher, and scholars at the tops of their fields on new ideas and innovative treatments. Some of the best care in the world.

ConsBecause it is such a leader in care and research, you must be on your toes. Be ready to accept demanding challenges, but they are so rewarding.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe hospital does a good job of seeming like a family rather than a bureaucracy, but that feel of an institution still creeps in at points.
