MedTech Boston is Looking for Interns!

MedTech Boston is looking for Fall 2017 Interns!

Boston is a city full of passionate people using new technology to think big about medicine’s most pressing problems; however, despite Boston’s innovative energy and solid medical infrastructure, many medical providers and health care entrepreneurs remain in the dark about the opportunities, events and work happening in and around the city.

At Medtech Boston, we work to highlight exciting medical innovation in the Greater Boston area, start discussion about the most controversial new healthcare offerings, and foster a sense of community among the city’s health care entrepreneurs.

We are currently looking for aspiring journalists who have experience pitching and writing stories, creating viral content and editing work from freelancers. You’ll work directly with our managing editor on everything from writing stories, to planning major projects to securing partnerships with key organizations.

This is an ideal position for an undergraduate or graduate student who wants to learn about life at a startup, and who is interested in both healthcare and journalism. We’d prefer to work with those located in the Boston area, but the right candidate could live anywhere in the United States.

Examples of projects you’d work on:

  • Interviewing and writing feature stories/Q&As about key healthcare professionals
  • Managing the design and preparation of our weekly newsletter
  • Covering local healthcare innovation events
  • Pitching new types of content – this includes infographics, video stories, photo essays, and more
  • Maintaining a solid Twitter presence
  • Cultivating partnerships with key stakeholders and writing articles about their projects
  • Pitching and executing story series
  • Creating content around our networking events and our annual conference
  • Our editorial interns help drive community and innovation at MedTech Boston. We’re a remote company, so you’ll be working from home (or from your favorite coffee shop) most days.

All internship positions are unpaid, but we’re happy to help you arrange for class credit!

To apply, please send a resume and writing sample to abigail@medtechboston.com
